In brief: Depends

What you do in this situation is dependent on how much time you have before the big race.
In brief, it needs rest, modalities to reduce inflammation and alter loading or conditioning. If the race is in a few days then aggressive medical management with anti-inflammatory medications may save your race and the preparation you have made. If you have more time, then greater options are available.
