What can I do for tennis elbow?

In brief: Elbow Band
One may need to rest the elbow for a period of time.
Physical therapy may be helpful. There are also elbow straps that support the radial tendons that are affected by tennis elbow that are inexpensive and effective. In severe cases a local injection of steroids may be useful.

Orthopedic Surgery
In brief: Several things
Reduce the strain on that arm. Less lifting or carrying.
Ice it several times a day if possible. Take nsaids if possible. Get a tennis elbow brace at the drug store and use it during the day. Stretch the extensor muscles throughout the day as much as possible. ( elbow straight, flex wrist down with other hand, hold 30 sec at a time). Inject if this doesn't help. Surgery last resort
