Patient :I hurt my hamstring playing tennis last night. Felt like I was shot in the back of my leg. There is no swelling or bruising this morning. I am taking Advil, have iced the injury and wrapped with an Ace bandage. What else can I do to promote healing? I have tennis playoffs upcoming in about 10 days. When I start playing again, is there something I can wear that will protect me from re-injury?
