Lateral (tennis elbow) or medial (golfer's elbow) epicondylitis are common overuse injuries. In order to treat the pain, I recommend patients start w/ RICE, follow w/ 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/category/elbow/

Hurt the inside of my elbow (medial epicondylitis), what to do?

Conservative care

Pain
Steroid injection, splinting, compression sleeve or band, therapy, immobilization, icing and anti-inflamatories are all part of the treatment protocol. Surgery is rarely indicated, relatively new treatment is platelet rich plasma injections to try and stimulate healing.
