how do you make tennis elbow feel better ?

besides resting it as much as possible and the use of anti-inflammatory medicine, both are only temporary fixes?

    unfortunately resting is the best for tennis elbow.
    if you cannot walk away completely from tennis, there are devices design to damping the shocks such as:

    since i never had the tennis elbow, it is hard for me to know if it actually works.
    my mom had some sever tennis elbow, even though she won a lot of 4.0 tournaments. there was a point she can not even hold a tennis racket. she took a very long break and starting golf, after her elbow heals, she actually work on her form so she won’t hit the ball too late – which usually the cause of tennis elbow. now she is playing again and free of tennis elbow.
    good luck!

    First, are you sure it’s tennis elbow? If you have a swelling on your elbow that feels as if it’s fluid filled, it could be bursitis. However, if you’re sure it tennis elbow, there are no real quick fixes other than rest (most important), wearing a brace or applying a cold compress several times a day for around 15 minutes or so.

    You have to give your elbow a rest or else the pain will only worsen. My father had severe tennis elbow, he had to rest for at least six weeks before he was in playing condition.

    Advil and ice as mentioned above AFTER you have it, but you need to understand WHY you have it now to prevent it from coming back. Playing too much, bad technique or playing with the wrong racket for your playing style are the main culprits. I got it from a racket that was too stiff and light. Moved to a heavier, more flexible racket and now my TE is slowly going away but I am plying more than ever. A good article on TE and some exercises is listed in the link below.

    well if u do have tennis elbow, you should consider seeing a chropractor… they can loosen up the tendons around your forearm, they will knead them out with there hands, and they will adjust your elbow… you will need 10 – 12 sessions i was having problems with my elbow.. pain.. minimally though and thts what i did… i was also taking a trioflex supplment.,… u get it at GNC.. it has Glucosamine, chrondroton and Msm.. all these things help ligaments, cartilage and tendons.. and also stop inflamation.. i take this supplment as well.. goodluck
