This may seem obvious but I just wanted to throw it out there. I have been icing icing icing to numb pain and reduce swelling. I broke out an old electric blanket heating pad and in between ice sessions, I am able to warm not only the knee, but ESPECIALLY the surrounding sore muscles, tendons etc. I apply it to my lower back and hip on the affected side and the results have been really good. I am able to relax and get better range of motion and my stretching exercises are easier with "pre-heated" muscles. Hope this helps and best of luck. Note: you can burn yourself with these so don't fall asleep on it with bare skin et al.
