Perform simple range of motion activities by moving the knee through full range of motion and stretch at the limits of motion when fully straight and fully bent. Ice may help if pain persists.

Pressure and temp: A few studies have shown that especially for people with arthritis and healed fractures, joint pain can change based on outside weather.
