Mill’s Test
Test for lateral epicondylitis
The examiner palpates the patient’s lateral epicondyle with his/her thumb while passively pronating the forearm, flexing the wrist and extending the elbow. A positive test would be the reproduction of pain near the lateral epicondyle. This could also cause stress on the radial nerve so if positive it may possibly indicate radial nerve involvement.
