Often the problems are a result of weakness in the thigh muscles (quadriceps), overuse, RSI, strain, trauma to the area or a growth spurt. The key is allowing the knee to rest when it is aggravated while strengthening the muscles around it to restore normal tracking and repair damage, with correct guidance and technique.
Below is a stretch called the Butterfly pose, which is fantastic for overuse R.S.I type of knee pain and injuries. Doing this regularly at home may also help prevent knee pain and restriction for strain associated with stiffness.
