Massage therapy works wonders for working out knots in muscles. If you cannot afford going to a massage therapist, try rolling a tennis ball or full water bottle over the knot.

On a side note, linking to UltiTalk from RSD is getting a bit tacky.

When in doubt, the hammer is always a good choice.

So is your calf muscle bruised or do you have knots in the muscle or both? Given your mechanism of injury I would make sure that you don't have any muscle tears.  Give your muscle a chance to heal.  If you just have "knots" in your muscle - heat, gentle stretching, tennis balls, etc can all help.  I would also recommend trying the Stick.  Just google "the stick and massage" and you should be able to find this product.  Good luck.
