Rest and PT: Your muscles are sore most likely from overuse They would benefit tremendously from balanced rest and physical therapy for conditioning.

Difficult when: Work is needed but pain is constantly there. I would suggest asking if there is anyway to sit during work. Assuming knee pain is basic osteoarthritis and not acute injury, try different shoes and include a lateral shoe wedge to offload the medial compartment.
