Hi
The treatment totally depends on the type of injuty. What part of your knee is injured and what type of life style you are expecting.
The complete tear,partial tear can  be diagnosed by MRI and the clinical diagnosis. Your  joint stability status can tell much about prognosis and treatment plan.
Physiotherapist can check your joint and assess the muscle power grade .

Hi, There are two ways to treat the injury:

Exercises and training, also called rehab. It takes several months of rehab for your knee to get better.

Surgery. You and your doctor can decide if rehab is enough or if surgery is right for you.

If you have surgery, you will also have several months of rehab afterward.

Your treatment will depend on how much of the ACL is torn, whether other parts of the knee are injured, how active you are, your age, your overall health, and how long ago the injury occurred.

Consult orthopedician....
