Stretch: Stretch the muscle out, drink lots of water, massage them and take an anti-inflammatory like Motrin or advil (ibuprofen) as long as you arent allergic to either one. Avoid things that hurt (such as running, etc) until you are back to your usual self.

Creatine: It's safe and it works if you are doing resistance training and eating plenty of protein. I hope you will not try Anabolic steroids -- though they work, most users who are not members of the extreme bodybuilding culture are very sorry in the long run. The others are probably ineffective.
