Let it heal: It sounds scary based on your description, but you are still able to do tumbling and stunts suggest that the injury is not serious. It seems you sustainted a pretty good sprain and some bleeding/swelling which reduces range of motion a bit. I would recommend doing gentle rom, take it easy, use some motrin/aleve for 1-2 wks and allow it to heal. If not better in couple of weeks, call doc. Good luck.
