Palpation of the extensor carpi ulnaris muscle

The elbow and forearm are still held in the same starting position (900 flexion, supination). Place the palpating finger below the lateral epicondyle. Ask the subject to perform ulnar deviation of the wrist. Tension can be felt in the tendon of the extensor carpi ulnaris, which runs towards the olecranon.
