In brief: R.I.C.E.
Initially, rice (rest, ice, compression (ace wrap), and elevate).
After the bruising has been stopped, warm, moist heat, physical therapy, massage, and range of motion exercises. Depending on what specifically is bruised, additional therapies may be prescribed.

If it is truly a bruise of a muscle around the knee, stretching, ice and anti-inflammatory medicines can do the trick, but best to be seen by an orthopedic surgeon to be sure it is nothing more serious.
