In brief: Many treatments

Most cases of tennis elbow resolve without surgery.
Rest, activity modification, ice, nsaid's, home based stretching and eccentric strengthening, a counterforce brace, formal physical therapy, and injections of cortisone or prp can all be considered. See your ortho surgeon to help decide on the best options for you. If all else fails, some people require surgery.
