Resting the affected areas is the first step. Other remedies that can be applied include:
• Taking an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as ibuprofen (Advil)
• Applying ice to the affected area helps relieve pain and reduce inflammation. Ice and heat should, preferably, be used interchangeably in the affected areas
Other pain relief methods include gently stretching the muscles and, most importantly, avoiding high-impact activities that will further aggravate the issue.
