I had same thing happen two years ago. As I recall it was about 4-6 weeks before I could swing or throw or even run without pain. The only thing I know of is time to heal.

Time will heal it if give it 4-6 weeks. The issue is whether PT or other therapy will help. You probably need to see a sports medicine specialist who will take the appropriate picture and advise whether Pt or other therapy will help. Unfortunately, probably only rest will heal it. You don't want a chronic problem.
