In brief: Knee pain

Knee pain can come from an acute process such as a torn meniscus or chronic such as degenerative joint disease.
The question is too broad for a specific answer. If the pain comes from prolonged activity and recovers with rest then arthritis may be the culprit. Best recommendation would be more information regarding type of pain and relationship to activity.

In brief: Try exercises first

Exercise therapy can be very helpful for knee pain, particularly runners knee.
However, they must be performed in certain ways. Rest from strenuous activities and targeted therapy are key. Online resources are available on sites such as simpletherapy.Com.
