Question - Quad Injury

We live in rural East Texas. My son is an exceptional 200 & 400 meter sprinter. He pulled/strained his quad 10 days ago. We followed the trainers advice and iced, compressed, elevated, etc. for the first 48 - 72 hours.

The trainer has him jogging (lightly) and doing stretches but... He says that it does not feel any better and may be getting worse??

What type of rehab workout do you suggest?

More info you may or may not need. My son has just turned 15, is 5'8" and 152 pounds, very muscular on a thin boned frame.

We are new to this area and not real comfortable with the level of medical care - for athletic injuries and considering going to the Dallas-Ft. Worth area if needed to have his leg looked at.
