what are good tennis elbow treatments?

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.

Many: Physical therapy for iontophoresis and phonophoresis, deep tissue modalities, stretching, and strengthening. Ice for 10-15 min 4 times a day, counterforce strap bracing, nsaids, and avoidance of the activity that aggravates. Occasionally a wrist brace is used and steroid injections can be considered for cases lasting months that don't respond. Surgery is rarely indicated.
