In brief: Yes

Tennis elbow is usually a self limiting condition but it can persist for many months (sometimes greater than a year) for those with severe symptoms, treatment can be helpful and may include: anti-inflammatory medication, physical or occupational therapy, braces, prp injections or even surgery.

In brief: Yes

My usual treatment is stepwise.
First, antiinflammatories, exercises or physical therapy, tennis elbow braces, and activity modification is used. Next, i will offer a cortisone injection. After this, i will offer a second cortisone injection or even prp (platelet-rich plasma). Finally, if all of these treatment modalities fail, i will offer a minimally-invasive lateral elbow release.

In brief: Yes

Vast majority of patients with tennis elbow make a complete recovery.
However, you must be patient. Recovery may take up to a year, or occasionally longer. Less than 10% need surgery.
