Elbow compression

Compression is effective to eliminate any pain and it is useful in getting relief from elbow pain. Get an elastic bandage or strips of clothes and wrap the elbow. While wrapping it, please make sure to wrap it firmly to provide the necessary support. This wrapping will prevent further swelling of the affected area.

Unwrapping is necessary so that the blood circulation can happen at the full force. Keep it under for 15 minutes. Repeat this process several times for the next few hours until you get relief from your elbow pain.
