In brief: Rest compression ice

Decreasing activity (especially the ones that cause swelling, rest, ice, compression (ace wrap) and nsaids are all reasonable ways to help treat knee swelling.
To figure out why your knee is swelling, an examination, x-rays, and perhaps an MRI are often needed.

In brief: Ice

Icing and elevating are commonly recommended to decrease swelling.
Usually 20-30 minutes on (make sure there is something between your skin and the ice pack) can be repeated a few times a day until the swelling resolves.
