In brief: Rest, gradual return

A torn muscle needs time to heal, and should be rested for at least 2 weeks.
After that, be gentle - very slowly begin gentle stretches and low impact exercises. It is very easy to re-injure the muscle if you overdo it! a significant tear in the muscle will take 6-8 weeks before you can get back to a strenuous level of activity.

In brief: RICE

You should start with rice as a home treatment.
After 48-72 hours you may switch to heat (instead of ice). As your pain starts to subside you may add stretching as tolerated, and massage. Once pain is gone, then gently return to activity as your strength and flexibility may need time to recovery after the injury. Depending on the severity you may need the supervision if a physical therapist!
