In brief: Ice, rest, factors
For a hemophiliac, bleeding into the joints are the usual causes of swelling and subsequent arthritis.
So, the first thing should always be to rest, ice and to check the factor levels to make sure that the swelling is not due to bleeding into the joint.

In brief: Depends on damage
This can be lack of treating the hemophilia bleeding factors or previous damage form earlier bleeds.
It will depend on the inner structure of the knee and what cartilage and bone damage there has been. You will need a program of exercise, to help support your knee. Medication used will depend on how well your clotting factors can be controlled.
