In brief: RICE

The tried and true method of rest, ice, compression (using something like an ace warp for joints like knees and ankles) and elevation work well to ease the short term pain after running.
If this is a recurring problem, make sure you're using good footwear, not having too hard or intense of sessions, and having a good warm up and warm down routine. Good luck!
