Chill and NSAID: fluid in the joint is a natural reaction to injury, and takes time to re-absorb. NSAID like Naprosyn (naproxen) helps limit the inflammatory response. Joint noises often accompany changes in fluid. Patience, quad strengthening, and avoid major walking or athletics until you can comfortably stand on one leg and do a shallow knee bend. Consider followup with RPT or other qualified practitioner.
