I am a Podiatrist (Foot Spesensoredt) so I can not really tell you specifics about the knee. However, when there is an injury, generally speaking, it is best to use RICE (rest ice compression and elevation)
The extent of the damage should dictate the long term treatment. Her doctor who examined her should be able to give more information.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
