In brief: Many causes

Any time you have improper function or injury of a joint it can cause pain.
If you have knee pain that interferes with your activity you should see a doctor. Many young teens have knee pain with exercise. This is a growth-related condition. There should be no swelling or limp and the pain is temporary. It is called osgood-schlatters. It is not serious.
