How do i treat an elbow injury?

I have some kind of mild elbow injury. I seem to have messed up the "elbow nerve". I think it is from using a row machine with bad technique. It didn’t hurt at all during my work out but a few hours later it started and has gone on all day.
What should i do to make it feel better? Rest? Certain exercises? Ice? Heat? Can anybody tell me more about what this injury might be and maybe something i could do to prevent it if i use the row machine again?

    Your best bet may be to not use the rowing machine anymore. You may want to try some other form of exercise.

    I would suggest an anti-inflamatory to help with the nerve pain (nothing else will help with true nerve pain); something like Advil or Aleve.

    Also, use ice and/or heat. Whatever makes it feels better to you. You will just have to experiment there.

    Rest whenever possible can help. Good luck. 🙂

    I had a similar injury, i put it in a sling. After about 2 weeks or so it started to feel better, once i noticied it felt a little better i took it out of the sling and statred to rotate it as much as possible even if it was a little bit sore
