Brief Summary:
There is limited evidence of the efficacy of joint protection principles in individuals diagnosed with lateral epicondylitis in the literature. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of training of the telephone supported joint protection technique education on pain and upper extremity function in individuals with lateral epicondylitis. New information will be obtained according to the results.
