How long does it usually take a swollen knee to heal ?

Report as

Depending on the injury, it can take anywhere from 20 minutes to several days for swelling to go down. Swelling itself is not the injury, it is simply a bodily reaction to an injury.

What kind of injury is it? I have a bone bruise in my knee which causes it to swell all the time. I've had it for over 2 years now.

Ice it and it should go away soon. Only ice it 20 mins at a time if u do longer you could get frost bitten
