Pulled hamstring: How to get the muscle working again

Q. What is the best way to treat a hamstring strain? I strained it while playing tennis about three weeks ago. It just pulled up tight, but I did feel a pop. I had to stop playing and rested it for about two weeks. It felt good. I went back to play, and the same sensation recurred. When it is safe to return to play tennis?
