Hi
For entrapment of ulnar nerve and pain you should get emg ncv investigation and get the nerve release from operstion.
For tennis elbow you can consult sports medicine doctor and take local hydrocortisone injections 3dose if patient is not diabetic. Also avoid lifting weights and apply ice.
Get well soon.
Thank you.
