Can't speed biology: Your muscle and connective tissue will heal at their own rate. You can speed up feeling better by working with a physical therapist. See your doctor or an orthopaedist for an evaluation to make sure your injury is not more serious.

Don't lie on back: If it hurts to lie on your back, don't. Otherwise it does't matter what posture as long as you're comfortable.
