This is going to be a video on the Mill’s Test for lateral epicondylitis, better known as Tennis Elbow. Hi and welcome back to Physiotutuors. The Mill’s Test is designed to maximally stretch and therefore provoke the Extensor Carpi Radialis Longus and Brevis. To perform the Mill’s Test have your patient in standing position and fixate the humerus while you palpate the lateral epicondyle. Then passively pronate your patients forearm flex the wrist and extend the elbow fully. This test is positive if your patient complains about sudden pain at the lateral epicondyle. OK guys, this was the Mill’s Test for lateral epicondylitis. If you want to get to know 2 other methods on how to test for a Tennis Elbow, check out the Cozen’s Test right here or check out a 3rd method right here.

  1. Question: We learned it as 90deg Elbow flexion and resisted supination (as eating a bowl of "General Mill's" Cereal". Have you seen that referenced anywhere by chance?

  2. can we also like passively supinate , extend wrist, extend elbow? from an elbow flexion 90deg, pronated arm and closed fist
