Answer by  Gladys1111 (54)

The main treatment is rest and alleviating the symptoms: icing the elbow, taking ibuprofren, and avoiding activities that cause pain or strain. It is normal for recovery to take several weeks or months. It can help to see a physical therapist for exercises and other strategies. If symptoms persist after some time, surgery is an option of last resort.
