Tennis elbow pain can be very frustrating, for some people in can just be a little pain that they feel in their arm but sometimes people ignore this pain thinking it’s from working too hard and they can end up causing further injury. Some people can cause so much more injury that it can become unbearable to do simple household tasks such as opening the door, writing and even managing to hold a cup of coffee. This is why I am going to give you my top 3 methods to get quick tennis elbow pain relief so that you can get back to your daily routine.

  • Exercise

Yes, by doing exercises that are targeted at the forearm region you can speed up the recovery and prevent it from happening again. The exercises you do will help by strengthening that region building more muscle making it harder for you to get the injury again. Don’t exercise until it starts to hurt just do a few reps (25) and then rest, you don’t want to cause further injury.

  • Ice

Ice is a method that everyone uses to help relieve pain. By using ice you can reduce and swelling and inflammation that occurs. The recommended ice use is 3 times a day, 10-20 minutes per use and never reapply within 2 hours.

  • Counter Braces

Counter braces act as a method to spread the pain of the injury across your forearm. The brace is normally placed just below the elbow and it reduces the amount of movement s you make when you are opening doors, grabbing and twisting objects making it a good tennis elbow pain relief method.
