Hey Dan,

Has the pain been lingering long after the episode? The typical mwod prescription would be to mobilize the soft tissues above and below the site of pain (to feed some slack into the system and offer the affect tissues relief), but that may not be enough to actually resolve a significant issue in a reasonable timeframe. It would probably be worth visiting a reliable physician and/or therapist for a proper diagnosis and treatment.
That said, prevention of further episodes will depend on you identifying the cause of the issue (movement errors, overtension issues, etc) and resolving those concurrently while receiving treatment. A good therapist and strength coach could definitely help you dig up some clues.
Good luck!
