Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
Based on the description, I think you could have suffered a Muscle strain
in the thigh.
Most muscle strains can be treated with the RICE protocol
. RICE stands for Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation.
* Rest - Take a break from the activity that caused the strain. avoid putting weight on the leg.
* Ice - Do not apply ice directly to the skin. Use cold packs for 20 minutes at a time, several times a day.
* Compression - To prevent additional swelling and blood loss, wear an elastic compression bandage.
* Elevation - To minimize swelling, keep your leg up higher than your heart.
medications as needed.
As the pain and swelling subside, physical therapy
will help improve range of motion and strength. The muscle should be at full strength and pain-free before you return to sports. This will help prevent additional injury
Hope this information is helpful. Good day
