Hi there!

Well, without knowing the relevant clinical details or a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment on the situation and without a definite diagnosis at hand it is difficult to suggest a management plan. Assuming this to be a case of tendon injury/ tear or inflammation/ tendonitis, management is largely conservative consisting of rest, anti-inflammatory medications and physiotherapy in most cases. Surgical options may be considered in severe injuries or when increased strength of the muscle is required. It would be best to discuss the situation, the suggested management plan and the expected prognosis in detail with your treating orthopedician.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
