      Does anyone have any tips for clearing swelling that’s trapped inside the joint capsule of the knee? Compression doesn’t shift it.

      Active recovery…movement
      Swelling is the waste from the the inflammation stage that wasn’t cleared by the system.
      Active recovery stimulates the muscles to clear the waste.

      Thanks Kaitlin, I have found this helpful. Although the swelling is very slow to disperse, just keeping active and putting the knee under low load and higher frequency definitely aids the recovery.
      Cheers, George
