In brief: PT
Avoiding the painful activity.
Ice, antiinflammatories, stretching. Physical therapy. This can take time to heal. Be patient, and it will pay off later.

In brief: No good answer
There really is not a best answer for this.
What works well and fast for you might not for the next patient. In general, injections work faster than medications or pt, but also incur higher risks. Steroid injections have a risk of causing rupture of the tendon, while prp, a newer treatment, may take days or a few weeks to see the full benefit.
