Brief Answer:
Volini will also work

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Rest and anti-inflammatory medication both helps in healing. If we keep on using muscles then healing will not take place. So rest is must. Along with rest anti inflammatory like voveron or Etoricoxib can be given.
Body heals it self. We just need to support it. High protein diet like pulses, soybean and egg is also useful.
