  1. For now you might need to take some time off to have your muscles rested and healed. However for more long term benefits you will need to ensure that you are consuming adequate fluids inclusive of a minimum of 8 glasses of water each day. You will also need to consume more foods rich in vitamins A, B6, C, D and E as well as zinc, iron, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, essential fatty acids and bromelain. These are sourced from foods such as whole eggs, papaya, cantaloupe, pumpkin, carrot, tomatoes, pineapple (which is very rich in bromelain), meats, fish and other sea foods, nuts and seeds, dairy foods, legumes, bananas, apples, apricot, avocado, citruses including grapefruits, mushroom, oysters, and milk (which is the richest source of calcium and phosphorus)

  2. rest and water… take a week off and continue to eat healthy and if it is still bothering you I would go see a doctor, you may need anti-inflammatory medicines to help it. I took anti inflammatory pills when mine wouldn’t heal and it helped a ton.

    you can still do upper body work and burn calories if you do like upper body circuit training.

  3. Ice the area twice a day, and keep off it as much as possible throughout the day. Also, think about getting off the treadmill and onto real ground. Or, you can spin (bike) or swim. Both are not particularly weight-bearing and are zero-impact to help.

    Rest. You have to rest.

  4. remember RICE:
    Rest the affected area and avoid further injury.
    Ice the area for at least 10 minutes every two to three hours to decrease pain and swelling.
    Compress the area with an elastic bandage or wrap to minimize swelling.
    Elevate the area to facilitate fluid drainage from the injured site.

    Also, see a doctor.
