In brief: RICE
Rest (limit activity, use of injured join), ice (ice pack over cloth 15 minutes or ice massage with an ice cube directly over the area of tenderness for 5 minutes), compression (ace wrap or compressive sleeve) and elevation of the injured part.
If you don't note continued, adequate improvement be sure to seek a medical evaluation.
