Try standing against a wall with a tennis ball on the area causing the most pain and gently push against the ball .... might be painful to start but it does relieve the pain x x

I agree pincess! Lots snd lots of ice! I suffer with that too and see a sports massage therapist once a month!
However there a loads of yoga moves you can do to stretch it out - the ones in the Sunday Stretch are really helpful! X

Ouch! Anti inflamatories are really good like ibuprofen if you can tolerate them. Ice the area 15 mins 2x a day. Ice is better than heat. Other than that if you can see a physio or deep tissue masseur it helps but time with above is basically the treatment xxx
