Rest: The mainstays of therapy for muscle strain include resting the muscle and avoiding movements that cause pain; application of ice for up to two days after the injury; wrapping the muscle in an elastic bandage; and pain medications (nsaids) such as ibuprofen, Aleve (otc) or Mobic (meloxicam) (prescription) supplemented with acetaminophen. It may take days to weeks to completely heal.
