Moist heat is what most of us use. I keep lidoderm patches on hand which might work well on an area like the elbow that is close to the skin. You need a rx for them. They are 3x6 patches with lidocaine in them that kinda numbs the area enough to help the pain. It's 12 hrs on and 12 hrs off. I was first rxd them for broken ribs but have used them every since for areas like my hands. I cut them in half for small areas.
I also gently stretch an area that is hurting.
luv and hugs
