There are all sorts of elbow pain, but one of the classic forms is called lateral epicondylitis. When you are talking about lateral epicondylitis, you're essentially talking about pain on the outside of the elbow. That pain can be very annoying. It can cause irritation and it's often associated with playing tennis and sports where you actually are moving and twisting at the elbow. That extra strain can cause problems. One of the best treatments for it is ice to the area because you are decreasing the inflammation.
