Knee inflammation

I took a Salsa Class and I twisted my right leg too much. I have had my knee swollen for about 2 months. Its less inflammed now but the problem is that I cannot bend my knee all the way back. It gets stuck and I cannot extend it all the way. There has never been any pain just discomfort. I had an x-ray and it was normal. Some doctors have suggested surgery. Is there another alternative?

Silicone inserts leave radius and ulna pressure-free and provide intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
