Conservative care: Symptoms typically include pain on the outside of the elbow that occur with prolonged hand/wrist activity as well as pulling the wrist back towards you while it is resisted with your other hand. If symptoms are of short duration, you can try avoid exacerbating activities and over all rest of the region. Conservative care also includes ice and tennis elbow bracing you can find at pharmacy store

Pain in the forearm: Tennis elbow is inflammation of the muscles of the lower arm. It is the result of repeated mild injury which, with time becomes more painful. It is also called tendinitis, meaning inflammation of the tendon of the arm used for the Tennis racket(right or sometimes left forearm).Pain can be relieved with rest(no tennis for a few weeks) and use of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs(NSAID)like Motrin
