Pain in left leg, limping, feels like knee bending in a wrong manner, after falling down. Treatment?

Yesterday I jumped down about a 3 foot drop , and landed on straight leg. Immediately after I landed I felt pain in my left knee and laid on the ground about 5 minutes. I can walk but it hurts and I have a limp. Sorta feels like my knee is bending the wrong way when I walk. There s no swelling or anything like that though.

General & Family Physician 's  Response
From history it seems that you might be having some ligamental or cartilage injury causing this problem.
Give complete rest to the part.
Apply ice pack for 2-3 days.
Take anti-inflamatory medicine for 2-3 days.
Ok and take care.
