Self Resolving: Mostly the problem spontaneously resolves over time. The difficulty is it is hard to predict the length of time until it resolves. Rarely needs surgery. Therapy and activity modifications or restrictions are the mainstay of treatment. Night-time neutralization bracing is also quite effective, i.e., keeping the arm and elbow neutral at night with a brace, a pillow, and/or a wrap.

Yes: Usually the symptoms can be treated with ice, nsaids and avoidance of the offending activity. Sometimes a local cortisone injection might be required much less frequently surgical correction may be necessary.

Yes: Tennis elbow can be treated by a number of modalities. There have been numerous articles and papers published on what causes tennis elbow and how to treat it. In my experience, I have treated tennis elbow from conservative methods to surgery. Almost everyone got better. I determine treatment on a case by case basis.
