For clarity and general background here, there are a few things you ought to know. As an example, you need to understand that a tennis elbow injury is caused by repetitive stress injuries that are literally tearing at the ligaments and tendons.

So what is to avoid here? And then, why should this be avoided?
Because when you’ve got a injury like this, you’ll need to see a Doctor and use the some sort of device to restrict the motion of your forearm.
Now then, listed here are the three things you want to avoid:
First and foremost, don’t use heat to treat the pain. The main reasoning in this is that heat does nothing to reduce swelling and or healing.
How do you recognize how much avoidance should be used? Switch to using ice because this immediately helps with the inflammation thus lowers the pain you experience.
Second, avoid pain medications that are not anti-inflammatory. And just why would that be? well using a pain medication that does not reduce the swelling is not beneficial in the long term. Your elbow needs as much help as possible.
How exactly can we really know what is sufficient? Well you can easily use a aspirin or similar pain medication that actually helps promote the healing.
Third and lastly, stop using your forearm. This is largely because the more you use the forearm the less it repairs itself
How do we tell if it is sufficient avoidance? If you continue to experience pain you are not restricting the motions of your arm enough. The only way to restrict the usage of your forearm is by using tennis elbow braces.
