Ideally an MRI should be done for the exact assessment of the injury as these may involve following structures;
1) partial rupture of some of the muscle fibers
2) ligament sprain
3) tendonitis; all of which were not completely healed.
A supervised exercise regime under a physical therapist is advised who gradually increase the exercises in following steps;
1) range of motion exercises
2) exercises against resistance (with springs and elastic bands).
3) exercises under water
4) exercises with very gradually increasing weight.
This should heal these structures and gain the full strength and prevent the recurrence of injury.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
