Depends on how long after injury. If its been two days since injury, moving around will be uncomfortable. You could use a stockinette under your brace to reduce irritation. Ice packs, pain-killer ointments, gentle movement and static strengthening exercises. If it has been a while since injury, you could start closed chain exercises. Some types of ACL injury are repairable, others need the whole ACL reconstructured.
