Possibilites of the causes of pain in elbow (deep in the bone) are;
1) tennis elbow
2) golfer's elbow
3) olecranon bursitis
4) degenerative arthritis
5) little league elbow syndrome
6) cervical radiculopathy.
An MRI is one of the best investigation to get the exact diagnosis. The Golfer's elbow has the pain on the inner side of the bone on elbow (and its counterpart tennis elbow on the opposite end, both have same treatment) and has following advised for the management (olecranon bursitis and other too would also respond to similar management);
1) Anti-inflammatory analgesics like Motrin / Advil for around 10-14 days.
2) Elbow brace
3) Physical therapy
4) Warm compresses
5) Local analgesic patch / ointment / spray

1) iontophoresis, phonophoresis
2) electrical stimulation
3) shock wave therapy
4) local steroid shots
