In brief: Some things to try

First, get checked again to be sure that's really all it is.
Once someone gets costochondrtis, it does tend to recur. Treat costochondritis with ice and anti-inflammatories. I'd also try massage and acupuncture. Consider seeing a chiropractor or osteopath who does manipulation. There are some anti-inflammatory herbs that could be helpful, turmeric is probably the best know of these.
