How do you treat tendonitis in the elbow?

Tendonitis of the elbow is very common and can occur on the outside of the elbow (Tennis Elbow) or on the inside (Golfer’s Elbow). Both conditions are overuse conditions and are treated with initial rest, ice, and anti-inflammatory medications, followed by stretching and light strengthening of the forearm. In some cases a cortisone injection may be needed. If symptoms still don’t go away, then surgery may be required.
