In brief: Patience
Recovering from a muscle injury can take anywhere from 2-6 weeks depending on the severity.
Ice, rest, and stretching will help recovery. Avoid reinjuring the muscle by modifying your activity and consider seeing a sports medicine specialist or physical therapist for help in directing your treatment.

In brief: R.I.C.E. and Rehab
Always seek medical evaluation if your condition does not improve with treatment.
Briefly, care for a pulled hip muscle should initially involve ice, rest, and a compressive wrap. Early range of motion is important when pain allows, followed by gradual strengthening exercises and methodical and controlled increase in activities. Medications and physical therapy can be helpful as well.
