Daughters quad is sore after soccer, what's best.. Ice or heat? Daughter has been doing heat for 30 minutes.. Doesn't seem right..
Ice for 15, rest for 15, heat for 15, rest for 15. Gentle stretching throughout.
The best way to manage a quad is by taking a walk and stretching for a while. Also increase potassium intake as it helps with muscle sores. You could go relax or even get a massage to relax the strained muscles it is bound to work.
