Depends, do you: Mean like you banged it and have some skin abrasions and bruising but with no interior derangement? If this is what you mean, then consider, rest, gentle range of motion, nsaids if appropriate for your health. If it does not get better in a few days, consider seeing a physician.

Injury: Knee injuries can be complex and very debilitating. Treatment depends on what has been injured (collateral ligaments, patellar tendon, acl/mcl) and what is necessary for repair and recovery. A visit to an orthopedic surgeon is best way to determine the extent of the injury and if further treatment is required. Usually, therapy is required after orthopedic repair.
