First Aid Tips:

a)   For fresh injuries, apply ice pack for 10-20 minutes & pain relieving ointment
b)   Change the current posture or allow the joint to take rest if under constant stress
c)   Crack bandage can help in reducing the swelling immediately after the injury
d)   Keep the knee in an elevated position
e)   Avoid smoking as it slows down the healing process by decreased blood supply and delays tissue repair
