Counterforce brace is to be worn at all waking hour, make a fist then tighten the splint at the upper forearm 1 finger space below the elbow joint line. This prevents constriction of blood flow yet at the same time prevents the brace from sliding down.

Once pain reduces and flexibility improves start with shoulder strengthening to improve posture
It is important to strengthen the shoulder to avoid compensatory movements. So in addition to proper lifting techniques and stretching a patient suffering from tennis elbow should also strengthen the shoulder. Avoid repetitive gripping or gripping away from the body as it will increase pain

If you play tennis, watch your backhand, increased wrist movements will cause pain in the elbow. Two handed back hand preferred
