In brief: RICE

Rest, ice, compression(ace bandage), elevation .
(if swollen). Some prefer to alternate heat and cold every 20 minutes if that works better over the acute phase

In brief: What is pulled muscl

Essentially a pulled muscle, which can also be called a muscle strain, is when a particular muscle is stretched too far or too fast and this causes tiny tears to occur in the muscle fibers.
In other words you of course haven't torn the whole muscle, but you have caused some of the fibers in there to become slightly frayed. Rest, ice, compression compression, elevation, painkillers.
