In brief: Few things to do

Good range of motion, stretching, use of elbow-strap, avoid the "traumatic activities" that caused your elbow trouble (such as playing tennis, hammering, repetitive lifting/twisting of hand/forearm) and use motrin/aleve may help.
If not better, consult doc for eval of alterative treatment--different meds, physical therapy, and/or possible cortisone injection. Shockway therapy may help. Good luck.
