I have tennis elbow since last 4-5 weeks. I went to the doctor who prescribed me painkillers and asked to give my elbow rest for 2 weeks and wear an elbow brace most of the time. I have been giving rest to my elbow but the weakness in my elbow is not going away. I am not able to put any stress on by elbow. Does physiotherapy helps? How many sessions are typically required for such an injury?
