In brief: Yes

It should as long as it is not torn.
For only strain, may help break up adhesions. Hope that helps!

In brief: See below

Avoid any deep massage to the muscle as it may further aggravate the problem. Please apply ice pack and keep leg elevated.
Extra pillow under the leg may give some comfort.
