The best advice for an intercostal strain is DON'T RUSH IT. Don't make a few half swings, feel fine and then start thinking, I'll make a few full ones. That's how you tweak it and prolong the injury. Take some antiinflammatories like ibuprofen and make sure not to overestimate your progress and reinjure yourself.
