In brief: Conservative

Treatment- nsaids, warms packs /ace wrap application, physical therapy, immobilization with a brace.
The small fluid accumulation may resolve by itself otherwise it needs to be drained if it builds up. Follow up with ur orthopedic. Best wishes! http://reference.Medscape.Com/article/90068-treatment#showall.
