Hi.

If the muscle is still sore and there is swelling, you should apply ice to bring the swelling down. You could take anti-inflammatory medications to help relieve the swelling and pain medications for easing the tenderness.

You would need to rest the affected area by sleeping on your stomach, using soft pillows when you sit, and avoiding wearing tight clothes.

If your symptoms persist, consult a physician to properly evaluate your injury and rule out other causes of pain such as nerve impingement.

Hope this helps.
