In brief: Family doc

It's probably best to see your family doctor. They can take a look and make some recommendations.
In the mean time you can use Motrin and Tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain. A muscle strain wouldn't be treated surgically.

In brief: Either

Either specialty can diagnose and often treatment is rest and time.
