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.

chill buddy even i am huge fan of sachin,...nothing to worry ...and i am a physiotherapist...tennis elbow means swelling of the elbow...at the origin of a muscle.. the name of the muscle is extensor carpi radialis brevis...as the name suggests it is usefull for extension of the wrist...it is 100 percent treatable...taking rest is the best treatment along with physiotherapy and mild exerscise...pain killers will help in the case of severe pain...

My husband, age 52 has chronic back and neck pain, has had Lyme disease twice and now has a pinched nerve in his back causing pain down his leg and arm. He has seen an orthopedic surgeon who diagnosed him as having tennis elbow, gave him 3 cortisone shots and said that s about it. I am not convinced that is all that can be done. What kind of a doctor can I take him to and what are potential treatments.
