Swelling in the knee can develop as a result of fluid buildup due to overuse injuries and conditions like arthritis or gout. Related symptoms include stiffness and pain. While the swelling will often go down in a short period of time, medical treatment should be sought out if it does not improve or if the knee becomes red and warm to the touch.

How can physical therapy treat swelling in the knee?

When you first meet with a therapist regarding swollen knee treatment, the first thing you can expect is an evaluation that includes a review of your medical history, an assessment of your range of motion and painful areas, and a thorough discussion of your symptoms and how they are affecting your daily activities.

With this information, you and your therapist can work together to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that can include:

  • Strength, stability and balance exercises
