Calf Muscle Hematoma
Hematoma aspiration: Aspirating a hematoma is primary risky because of introducing an infection, although the risk is very low. If the hematoma is painful and makes it difficult to walk, it's probably worth the risk, otherwise the body can probably absorb it over time....
It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more

Hi I have a bruise on calf muscle with a skin color line through it and don't remember hitting it?
See below: This is a pretty general description. How long have you had it, how big is it, is it getting better or worse, does it hurt, do you have any other symptoms?

You may have: Torn a muscle. If there is pain and swelling you need to have it examined. It is always possible to have a concomitant DVT which should be ruled out as it can be masked in the injury.See 1 more doctor answer
Torn Gastroc: Torn calf muscle happened because it could not absorb the load you placed on it and it failed. Therefore the goal of rehab is to make sure you are better than you were prior to the injury so you can return to that activity without injury. Just resting is not the answer, reconditioned. Need pain control, weight bearing protection, stretching, progressive strengthening to include eccentric loading.See 2 more doctor answers
Strain/calf muscle: R I c e treatment consists of 1 rest 2ice locally 3compression with ace bandage 4elevation followed by heelpad in both shoes, anti inflammatory medicines, ultrasond therapy, massage therapy and strengthening exercises.
Rest, ice, compress: Calf swelling and pain can often be due to local trauma- either a significant strain or actual partial muscle tear. This allows for local bleeding or hematoma formation within the injured muscle. Partial tears of the gastrocnemius (medial/inside head) are common injuries that may take weeks (2-3) to resolve with rest, ice, elevation and ace wrap compression as the standard treatment.

Good hydration before, during, after the activity esp if it is more than one hour to replace lost electrolytes esp sodium & potassium, which are major components of sweating. Should avoid excessive fatigue especially in warm weather.
6 weeks: 1/2 strength in 2-3 weeks, rest of strength next 2 months, .
Swee below: Warm soaks and passive stretching should help the injury.
Needle: You don't mention of the needle is still there or not nor how deeply it entered. If it is still there, see a doctor straight away. If not, the area should be evaluated for signs of infection. Either way it warrants a visit to your doctor
