Knee injury due to fall. Painful to stand straight, hip weakness. How can it heal?

I stepped of a curb wrong and fell hitting the left side of my body against a car and then landing my full weight on my left knee . As a result, I believe I have hyper extended my iliofemoral ligament too far and know walking while standing up straight is no only painful, but my hip joint seems to give out . I don t think I have actually torn the ligament, so what can I do to help it heal?
