It all depends on the extent of the injury. Anywhere from a week to a month. I know waiting is hard to do but do it.
1. Hot tub or hot baths to increase circulation and clean out the junk
2. Ibuprofen to manage the swelling even if it isn't visible. Ice for acute swelling.
3. Very light exercise where the tendons are never strained (no sprints, no hills, no big gears, no bold acceleration, no abrupt stops, no running, no weights) and this only after you're well on the path to healing. I wait until I think I've turned the corner on my path to wellness.
slowandsteady meantions something very important. Find out what caused the repetitive stress injury and fix it before you resume exercise (or resume typing on your keyboard if it's your hands.)
