Default Reworking Injured Muscles

I'm just seeing what other people think of this. I've not had any serious injuries so far, but I have had some minor injuries that are just annoying. Friday, I strained something along my glutes or hips for the second time in a few months. Both times I've found that stretching and lifting have been the best fixes. I squatted as much as I felt wasn't stupid, and then did good mornings. Saturday, I did some light, standing presses, and a good bit of rowing. The more I hit the sore spot, and exercise in general, the better it feels. Of course, if it was a tear or a spinal problem, I wouldn't be so quick to try this.

I also developed knee pain around this very time last year. I don't know the cause. Overwork I assume. Stopping did nothing. Low volume squats(body weight) and stretching seemed to work nicely.

Any input or science?

I used to get a lot of hamstring and wrist strains. I was training heavy weight, raw, no periodization. Once I introduced knee and wrist wraps my strains dropped by at least 95%. Literally. The extra support during training made a huge difference for me.

I know that doesn't apply to hips, but the knee issue scares me.

Yeah, I haven't had any form of periodization for quite a while and it's been banging me up a little here and there...

I've only had that one knee issue over a year ago. I don't recall any others. Although, that's not to say one couldn't pop up eventually.
