Rest: sounds like it's painful but just bruised . Check w/ parents first but you may want to take anti inflammatory med( Ibupofen, etc.) and take a few days rest from cheer and other activities which may aggravate your contusion/ sprain(s).If not improving fairly rapidly( w/in a weeks time) see your PCP for evaluation/ exam possible referral to orthopedist . Best of Luck!
