In brief: Sore Knees
If you have a sore knees from exercise you can used rice to rest it.
Rice is rest, ice, compression and elevation. This will help calm the joint. If the pain persists or gets worse, you should see your physician.

RICE is the recommended initial treatment for almost all athletic or musculoskeletal injuries. Minimizing swelling allows your body to move and heal faster.

In brief: Knee Pain
Pain in the knees after exercise, that goes away within hours to days may be simple tendonitis.
Using an anti-inflammatory cream, or oral medication might prevent or treat this. Stretching more, exercising less often, may also help. Some persons have a fixable foot deformity that puts pressure on the knees. Correcting this with shoe may prevent or help this as well.
