About teen knees...: Strengthening the hips, knees, and ankles will often make it easier to play without pain. A good thing to do is see one's doctor, who may refer one to a physical therapist if needed. A patient can also get exercises off the internet. Be sure to have well fitting shoes, proper arch support, and exercise on a flat surface. Anterior knee pains and knee stiffness happen to many athletic teens.
