You have to take rest ,apply ice and wear the knee brace which your orthopedic must have advised you. Or else with grade 3 tear usual arthroscopic surgery is advised. But if you are under conservative treatment than strict rest, wear proper brace while walking for adl, apply ice 3-5 times, leg elevation, and ankle toe and static knee exercises daily. Progress physiotherapy as per per orthopedic 's review, it will take minimum 3 months to heal and yes regular progressive physiotherapy rehabilitation for next 1.5-2 months to get back to normal routine and sports activities.
