Brief Answer: Xray of the leg and a local examination by GP Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX, Welcome to healthcare Magic! The calf is surrounded by many muscles and two underlying bones namely the tibia and fibula. The fibula can easily get fractured if the kick came from outer side and it can cause considerable pain and swelling. Another important possibility is soft tissue injury or hematoma. An Xray of the affected leg will rule out the fracture and you should get examined by a local GP or orthopedician for the later two possibilities and there treatment. I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you. Take Care!

Brief Answer: follow advise, rest Detailed Answer: Hi Boston.... Welcome back. The torn calf is manifest by swelling pain and tenderness in the local area. Best thing to do is to follow the advise of your local doctor once you get assessed. If mild degree then rest and pain killers will be all that is needed. If injured severely then may need repair.
