In brief: Time

If that is you're only injury ( based on exam and MRI ) than you need a few more weeks to let it heal.
You can work on strengthening the muscles about the knee and regaining full motion.Some ors may restrict your wt. Bearing the first 4-6 weeks in more severe bone ' bruises'.See your ors if you're stiffness and swelling are not improving spontaneously. Best of luck.!
