Pulled Butt muscle
I've been rigerously training for hockey and strech my butt muscles by crossing my left leg in front my right leg, then while keeping my right leg straight I basically go down like I'm doing the splits were my left knee is touching the ground and my right leg is straight back.
I was mowing the lawn two days ago (very big lawn) and I felt a twich in my left butt cheeck. It was sore but didn't seem like I pulled the muscle then. I streched it a few times later that day and it felt fine. Then yesterday I used a chair to grab something off the top shelf and I used my left leg to step up putting all my weight (165lb) on it and that was when I felt the pull. Ever since that point it very sore when I walk and god forbid have to squat to pick something up.
My question is what kind of treatment can I do? I have another practice tomorrow night and taking the night off isn't going to happen. I haven't played in 3 years and I need as much ice time as possible and I've played with worse injuries like broken foot, sports hernia, broken finger. Can I tape/wrap it? ice it? what should I do?
