He needs to ice this over the first 48 hours to prevent swelling. Have him take an NSAID medication with food if he has no other medical problems, but for now you need to pack him in ice. Later, you revert to heat with a whirlpool or jacuzzi and work on increasing stretching if he has any limitations before he goes back to lacrosse.
