Top best answers to the question «Should you elevate swollen knee»

Elevating the knee

When the person is resting, their swollen knee should lie above the level of their heart. This helps drain excess fluid from the joint and reduces blood flow to it. Both help ease swelling. Regular cushions or pillows often do the trick, but special leg elevation pillows are also available.
