Hi, Rest your knee for 1 week, ice packs to relive pain, take Tab Hifenac P 1-0-1 after food for 5 days, elevate knee while sleeping using pillow. Dont put much weight on that knee. Avoid any sports or jogging for 1 week. If pain and swelling wont subside please contact a local orthopedician for proper diagnosis and treatment. All the best Regards, Dr Santosh
