How Long Does It Take For Tennis Elbow To Heal?

I want my tennis elbow to heal, and I am wondering if anyone with the proper medical knowledge can please tell me how long it is going to take? I am so sick and tired of this agonizing pain, because I am not able to live a normal life because of my tennis elbow.

Thanks in advance!

    if its light and you don’t play on it 4 weeks, if you play sometimes, anywhere from 5weeks to 9 weeks

    4 – 7 weeks.

    ITs permanent… you can only temporarily heal it by ice… if your looking for something for permanent, look in to surgery.

    LOL I got tennis elbow from play WII. It was a good 2 weeks before I could play again.. But I still felt some stinging. So I would go on the safe side and say between 2-4 weeks.

    yes at least not that i play tennis but still get the same type of condition from using the are in a repetitive motion at any type of work you might do. Mine took about that much time to get better and be sure to wear the strap they give you it really helps with the every day pain and to help it heal…

    it depends you should see a doctor because i have it and i have it really bad and I have to go to a physical therapist 3 times a week. I’m really glad i’m getting it healed though because it really really hurts and I waited too long to go to the doctor.

    I fell hard on a parking lot, went to the hospital and then to an ortho surgeon. Taking PT 2 xs a week but 5 weeks later it is still impossible to open a can of pop hold anything in my hand. It aches and hurts most of the day. I just want to feel better but I seem to have hit a plateau in the recovery. Still cannot straighten my elbow and sometimes I get a shooting pain (like hitting your funny bone) down my arm. How long is this going to last? I cannot get consistent answers from the PT and surgeon.
