Hello,
Thanks for your query.
Treatment may involve resting for a few days, along with taking anti-inflammatories and pain medications. Cold and heat can help with some symptoms. Physical therapy and stretching exercises are often useful. Gradually increase movement over time.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
