In brief: See Physical Therapy

seeing a physical therapist would be the best thing to do to get specific recommendations for the type of injury you had.
See your primary care doc for a referral. One thing that's worked for me personally is one-legged squats. Start off standing on one foot with the other bent behind you for balance, squat down keeping the knee above the toe then extend back up. Go down as far as you can tolerate
