Lateral epicondylalgia, commonly referred to as tennis elbow, is a musculoskeletal condition characterised by pain and sensorimotor dysfunction. In some individuals with chronic unilateral LE, sensorimotor symptoms develop on the unaffected side despite no evidence of tissue damage. Altered interhemispheric inhibition (IHI) is one mechanism that could underpin this phenomenon. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to examine IHI between the primary motor cortices (M1) in individuals with chronic LE and healthy controls. In 20 individuals with chronic LE and 20 healthy participants, transcranial magnetic stimulation was used to assess i) short and long latency IHI from the affected (corresponding to the injured side) to the unaffected M1, and ii) corticomotor excitability of the affected and unaffected M1. Sensorimotor function was evaluated bilaterally at the extensor carpi radialis brevis muscle using pressure pain threshold, grip strength, two-point discrimination and temporal summation tests. Short- and long-latency IHI from the affected to the unaffected M1, and corticomotor excitability of the affected and unaffected M1, were not altered in individuals with LE compared with healthy participants. No differences in sensorimotor function were observed for the affected or unaffected ECRB muscles when individuals with LE were compared with healthy participants. IHI is not altered in individuals with chronic LE. Further studies are required to determine the mechanisms that underpin the development of bilateral sensorimotor symptoms in unilateral LE. PERSPECTIVE: IHI is unaltered from the affected M1 (corresponding to the painful muscle) to unaffected M1 in individuals with LE compared to healthy controls. The absence of bilateral sensorimotor dysfunction and low pain severity in this cohort of individuals with LE may explain this finding.
