See below: Without knowing what type of injury you have, it is impossible to give direct, specific advise, but generally, using the riice mnemonic (rest, ice, ibuprofen, compression and elevation) helps. Also, seeing pt may help out.

What to do at home if a knee injury and how to heal?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in

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.
