Ice and exercise: Tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis is a common condition causing lateral elbow and forearm pain. Best treatment is regular icing, stretching and exercise. A good exercise regimen can be found online at www.Aaos.Org. A formal orthopaedic evaluation may be beneficial. Physical therapy can often help as well.

Start with RICE: Lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow) or medial (golfer's elbow) are common overuse injuries to the elbow. In order to treat the pain, i recommend you start with rice, follow with stretching/ strengthening (therapy), & consider couterforce bracing. If these treatments fail you may be a candidate for cortisone or prp injections. Some people end up needing surgery... http://drmarkgalland.com.
