could fluid in the knee release itself naturally?

Usually: It depends on the cause of the fluid. If it is an acute trauma, the fluid usually dissipates on its own over the course of a few weeks. If it is someone who has severe arthritis in the knee, the fluid may remain much longer and be difficult to resolve.
