Tennis elbow occurs due to inflammation of the elbow. Pain will be present on the outerside of the elbow. It occurs mainly due to repeated motions of the elbow. You can take the pain killers if you have pain. You can ask your doctor to give corticosteroid injection at the elbow for the pain relief. You can also try the physiotherapy.
