Needs to be unlocked: A locked knee, usually from a torn meniscus or cartilage fragment becoming inappropriately lodged across the knee joint between the two bones of the knee is an urgent matter to have resolved. Pain is the symptom without question. Treatment of the pain is most obtainable by initially unlocking the knee. A visit to the er or an orthopaedic surgeon's ofc may be necessary. Often a knee injection helps.

Meniscus tear: One of the more common causes of these symptoms is a tear in the meniscus, a "c" shaped cushion between the bones that form the knee joint. See an orthopedic surgeon for a diagnosis. Good luck!

Nonspecific: Unfortunately this is a fairly nonspecific complaint, which could be caused by several possibilities such as cartilage injury/tear, ligament injury, arthritis, cyst, etc. You can try some stretches and anti-inflammatory meds, but see a physician if symptoms persist or are severe.

Physical Therapy: The most common cause of chronic knee pain is a condition called patellofemoral pain syndrome. This condition causes pain in the front of your knees. Its due to muscle weakness in the hip flexors, and quadriceps, along with a tight it band. Usually best treated with physical therapy. A home exercise program can be a good start.
