What is the recommended physio for a cartilage tear to the knee?

Question: What is the recommended physio for a cartilage tear to the knee?

A football player had a twisting injury fto the knee following contact with another player.
Pain and swelling lasted 2 weeks.
After a 'bump' was 'burst' on the lateral aspect of the knee movement full movement was obtained and knee was painfree.
AFter future training sessions, however, the symptoms came back.
I suspect a cartilage tear.
What strapping and physio would you recommend? (to try an dprevent surgery)
