Pain in the left knee from wakeboarding accident

Patient

Q: Hi! My name is Angel and Im 23 years old. I go wakeboarding once a week with friends. Last week I had an unpleasant fall. I was wakeboarding and went through a ramp which is only a flat surface. However, I lost my balance when I entered the ramp and fell on both my knees. I now have a small bruise on both my knees. My left knee has the bigger bruise located at the right side of my kneecap. I felt fine despite the bruises. After 2 days I felt pain on my left knee whenever I bend (like kneeling or getting up). I do not feel pain while walking or standing. What should I do about the pain? Any home remedies? please help!
