In brief: Yes.

If the knees are acutely sore, then ice usually works better. If they chronically hurt then warmth is usually the better option.
Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Aleve would help as well.

In brief: Yes

Feel free to ice down your knees for 5-10 minutes at a time when they ave been overused and hurt.
Reusable ice packs that go in your freezer are available at most drug stores.
