rib injury

I was in a auto accident in July and have been having a sharp pain at the bottom of my rib cage and have had a knot appear. I have had a ct scan, x rays, and bone scan done and have taken predinsone for inflammation. Went back to doctor today for results of scan and was told, no broken bones, just severe bruising and muscle torn from rib is causing knot. Put me back on predinsone for 30 days and flexrill for muscle spasms. What can I do to speed up the healing in this process? I was told to do not lift or even raise my right arm because that would pull muscle. It has been 3 months since the accident and at times it doesn't hurt and others times it is severe. Could the diagnosis be incorrect? I just want this pain to go away and get back to my normal routines. Suggestions?
