After reaching the goal in phase 1, it’s time for phase 2. The goal for phase 2 of tennis elbow rehabilitation is to improve the flexibility and to increase the strength and endurance at the same time increasing the functional activities until you can return the elbow’s normal function completely.
Phase 2 is divided into 2 parts; stretching and strengthening. In stretching, you need to be gentle and perform only gentle stretching exercises. You wouldn’t want to reinjure your elbow by trying to stretch it to the point that it starts to get painful. Stretching exercises includes wrist flexion, wrist extension and wrist rotation as you gradually increase your wrist’s range of motion.
Treatment for tennis elbow aims to relieve the swelling and pain. There are several treatments that can be used to relieve the swelling and pain such as Chiropractic Rehabilitation, Physical Therapy, Electrical Stimulation, Moist Heat, Ultrasound, Erchonia Pl 5000 Cold Laser, medications for pain relief that is non-steroidal such as naproxen or ibuprofen, local injection and using a splint to keep the forearm still.

Activities must be limited during treatment or rehabilitation until you are ready to start performing the activity again. If the pain persists after non-surgical treatments then it may require surgery.
About 95% of people who suffered from tennis elbow recover with the conservative treatments listed above but 5% won’t get better with any of the conservative treatment listed and would require surgery. 90% of people who have surgery gets their strength back and are relieved of pain.
