Please note, for most elbow problems you do NOT need an x-ray.  Your doctor can tell what is most likely going on from talking to you about your symptoms and examining your elbow. 

If you do nothing at all, most cases of Tennis Elbow will settle within 2 years.  However, with these exercises below, you can settle your Tennis Elbow within weeks.  But you have to do them!

THE EXERCISES

ECCENTRIC EXERCISE USING A BOTTLE

Please note, the man in this video is using a wine bottle which may be too heavy.   A small bottle of water or a can of baked beans will do.
