Rest: Avoid anti-inflamatories like Motrin or aleve if there is a sprain (with instability). Wrap the knee, ice and elevate periodically. Tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain should be sufficient for the pain. Any linament (greasy and warming) can stimulate blood flow for healing. See a sports doctor if the fluid and pain persist for 1 week. You will play again when healed and strong.
