The first thing to do when you have a knee strain is to rest the knee. You must take weight off the knee. Immediately apply ice or cold compresses on the knee. It is advisable to keep the cold compresses on for a few hours. You can use hot compresses intermittently after that. You will require to take anti inflammatory drugs to counteract the pain and inflammation. Please consult your doctor for the same. You may have to wear a brace on the affected knee for a period of 2-4 weeks to support the joint. Healing of the injury will depend on the severity. Mild injuries should heal over a period of time. More severe injuries may nor heal completely and may require more specialised treatment. I would advise that after the initial first aid that I have described, you should consult a doctor for further treatment.
