First off, if you're past the acute stage, get back to normal use. Depending on how severe the injury is, it can vary in how long you'll take to "feel" back to normal. Give your body the variety of movement it wants. A broad movement practice is important for anybody, and even more important to those with limited range of motion. Moving in novel ways helps your nervous system map itself and gives you a greater capacity for "safety" when you get into strange positions. Getting some bodywork could also be helpful to your body's natural course of action in healing itself.
