In brief: Don't aggravate it.

Anti-inflamatories may help too.
Continued heavy weight bearing will aggravate it like sports, especially those with quick lateral movements like tennis.

In brief: Don't reinjury it

The meniscus is supplied by blood vessels in the outer part.
If the tear is there it can either healed or be repaired. If it is not there, it will not heal by itself and if you have continued locking or pain may need to have an arthroscoipy.
