In brief: Stretching

Tennis elbow reflects a "tendinosis", consisting of small tears within the tendon attachment of the muscles that stabilize your wrist.
It is extremely difficult to treat (so there are so many treatment methods). One of the best ways to improve it is to stretch the muscle and tendons involved on a daily basis, in the morning and before use. This can be supervised by a therapist or done at home.

In brief: Many options

Tennis elbow: pain on the outside, difficulty holding/grasping a handle on a gallon of milk.
Treat with ice, nsaid's, elbow strap and avoidance of painful activities. If pain > 1 mos then see your doctor. Further options include formal therapy with modalities i.e. Iontophoresis, steroid injections, prp("latest and greatest?") injections, and lastly surgery if nonresponsive to treatment x 6-9 mos.

In brief: PT

Consider doing some physical therapy, obtaining a counter-force strap.
If these fail, corticosteriod injections help. Platelet rich plasma injection is also available as a newer treatment.
