Background: The effectiveness of the physiotherapy modalities have been investigated in chronic LET. To our knowledge, there have been no studies to find out the effectiveness of physiotherapy modalities in acute LET. The aim of the present report is to find out the effect of 448 kHz capacitive resistive monopolar radiofrequency (CRMRF) in acute LET.Case Report: A patient with left unilateral LET for 48 hrs participated in the present case study. The patient followed a course of 448 kHz CRMRF twice per day for five consecutive days. Outcome measures were pain and function, using a visual analogue scale, the Patient-Rated Tennis Elbow Evaluation and the pain-free grip strength. The evaluation of the patient occurred before and after the end of treatment. There was a decline in pain and a rise in function in all evaluations.Conclusion: The results of the present trial suggest that a course of 448 kHz CRMRF as described in the present trial can produce significant improvements in terms of pain and disability in acute LET.
