In brief: Tennis elbow

Management includes locall ice, stretching, and counterforce bracing.
Stretching done frequently with elbow fully extended and wrist flexed down. If pain persists, consider injection of steroid. Prp injections recently shown effective at reducing pain.

In brief: Stretches

The stretch that helps this condition is to extend (straighten) your elbow, then with the other hand, flex (bend) the wrist.
You'll feel it stretching the outside of the elbow, where the pain from tennis elbow is. Do this at least 20-30 times a day, holding the stretch 30 seconds at a time. Autologous blood injections (prp) are done in my office which is not medication.
