In brief: Physical therapy.
Most MCL tears will heal on their own.
They may require a brief period of immobilization, then physical therapy can begin. See a sports medicine orthopedic knee surgeon, to see if you can be treated in this manner.

In brief: Bracing
Usually an mcl can be treated with a hinged knee brace and time.
Occasionally surgery is required for severe tears and often times other injuries are associated with an mcl tear that may require surgical intervention.
