Brief Answer: At least 3-4 days for the pain to subside. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. I just saw your picture and reviewed your case, it is suggesting if you are able to rotate your limb without much pain then a bone injury is unlikely. You need to give rest and ice the affected area . Most of the times it is a soft tissue injury but it takes at least 3-4 days for the pain to subside. I hope this was helpful to you. If it was, please remember to ACCEPT the answer so I can get compensated for my work. if you have any more questions, please feel free to ask. I am truly privileged to help you, and I want to make sure that you are satisfied with your answer. Take care
