Rest and time: Some rest with activity modification/ restrictions combined with mild exercise and gentle stretching will help. Heat applications and over the counter medication will help as well, ie, tylenol, (acetaminophen) advil, aleve, etc. Over time, it will resolve based on severity over days to weeks.
