In brief: Endurance/strength
Unless you have a neuromuscular disease, strength and endurance training will allow you to function without pain.
Muscle tightness can be improved with ice/heat and gentle stretching. See a physiatrist to diagnose the cause of your pain and to give you an individualized treatment plan.
