In brief: Try braces, PT &-

NSAIDS & stretching & activity modification.
If all fails a steroid injection may help. Not repeated tho as steroids also damage the tissue it is injected into. A double edged sword, great drug but also dangerous for tissue.

In brief: Would

leave cortisone shots as last choice.
Wear a "bowlers" Velcro band, ice, rest. Once better try forearm weight excercises.
