personally i’d give it a rest for some days until the pain subsides somewhat. if you don’t you might make it worse.  i think light massage of the area to encourage circulation would be good as long as you can stand it. hard supernova action probably isn’t a good idea right now. smashes do create trauma and you don’t want to add to existing trauma.

there are some electrical and magnetic methods i’m playing with that might help but are kinda expensive. but let me know if you’d like to know what they are. one of those is http://www.somapulse.com.

make sure you’re eating enough – hard training athletes should be eating 1g protein per pound body weight. this may be a limiter in how fast you heal unless you eat enough. also make sure you can get enough vitamins.  

good luck!
