Thanks for writing to us.
It seems that you have suffered a mild soft tissue injury due to the fall. This will subside in 2-3 weeks with a hot fomentation and using an elastic knee brace for support. Exercise is not recommended during pain.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
