In brief: R.I.C.E
Rest, ice, compression and elevation are the basic things for trauma.
Homeopathic arnica can really help as can homeopathic bryonia. Keeping leg elevated helps a lot to keep blood circulating and decreasing discomfort. If pain continues or you have significant swelling you will need to be evaluated. You may find that traumeel also helps.
