Yea: Tennis elbow with appropriate conservative treatment such as as ice counter force pads local massage and injections can resolve or in more sever cases surgery is warranted and can solve problem.

Absolutely: The large majority of patients with tennis elbow fully recover. For some patients, it may take 1-2 years, as tendons heal very slowly & repetitive stress on the tendon does not allow for a rapid recovery. Wrist splint, eccentric strengthening of the forearm extensors & relative rest help many patients. Cortisone or prp injections are beneficial for many. The fast procedure is another great option.
