In brief: Rest then exercise

First you need a period of rest to let it heal, followed by an exercise program to help strengthen the injured muscle.

In brief: <in48hours-injury rx

Use cold therapy (rest, ice, compress, elevate) technique initially then - use a compression bandage to minimize intra muscular bleeding.
Early mobilization of the injured lower limb is vital for the correct rehabilitation of the muscle (rx pain) + include stretching and strengthening exercises throughout the pain free range. These can aid with decreasing the swelling in the area. + sports med doc.
