I would recommend you to get the MRI of the knee joint to confirm if there is any ligament injury is present. It can be a cartilage or meniscus injury. I also want to suggest you to wear a knee brace till you get your further diagnosis. Take Brufen tablet for pain and swelling. Also keep on applying ice over knee.Do not bend knee or just bend it enough that pain allows .
