OBJECTIVE.: To assess pain sensitivity and spreading hyperalgesia in lateral epicondylalgia (LE). SUBJECTS.: Twenty-two women with LE, and 38 controls were included. OUTCOME MEASURES.: Computerized cuff pressure algometry was used for assessment of pressure-pain threshold and tolerance. The stimulus was applied using a single (stimulation-area: 241 cm(2) ) or double-chambered (stimulation-area: 482 cm(2) ) tourniquet on the arm and leg. Spatial summation was expressed as the ratio between pressure-pain thresholds to single and double cuff-chamber stimulation. During 10-minute constant pressure stimulation at intensity relative to the individual pain threshold, the pain intensity was continuously recorded using an electronic visual analogue scale (VAS), and from this the degree of temporal summation was estimated. For LE, a Doppler ultrasound examination of the elbow was made to identify inflammation. RESULTS.: In LE compared with controls the pressure-pain threshold and tolerance were on average reduced by respectively 31% (nonsignificant) and 18% (nonsignificant) on the lower arm and by 32% (P
