torn calf muscle

Hi, I believe I've torn my calf muscle playing tennis. I went to run to the side and felt a pop and had immediate pain I can walk but can't allow my toes or ankle to tilt forward or the pain is instant. What are the recommended steps to take to heal this up as quickly as possible? Thanks Shane.
