    Pulled hammy question

    I pulled my hamstring during a soccer game last night, and I have a quick question about taking care of it. I've searched the forums and didn't find the specific answer to this question. I know I should be icing, compressing, elevating, etc. for now. And I know that most recommend holding off on the heat/massage until 2-3 days after injury. My question is, does that include things like IcyHot patches? I gotta say, I'd love to get some warmth against this thing to relax it. Anybody got some advice?

    Don't bother with icy hot. Buy a heat pad and a massage stick and use them several times a day.
