        I’ve watched some of the free videos here, and I have read elsewhere about the new thinking of compression vs. ice. Last night, pulled a muscle in my upper left leg very badly. They did give me ice, but I only briefly put it on. Instead I pulled off my hockey pants and tried to wrap the leg for a bit. Then I went home, wrapped it with an ace bandage, elevated it and slept. 

        I still have it wrapped. I have not taken any anti-inflammatories. I will try to elevate it when I can. 
        Other than that, is there any other strategy to this new thinking other than rest? I am trying to not avoid walking a bit so it doesn’t get too tight.
