If your knee hurts a lot, the mere idea of exercise might be horrifying. However, movement is a must. When you stop moving your knee joint in fear of experiencing more pain, you are doing nothing to fix it.

Hot and Cold Therapy
Using a heating pad on a stiff or tense joint will help it relax and improve the range of motion. Heat can also help stimulate the blood flow and enhance blood circulation through the painful knee joint. On the other hand, using a cold pack on a painful knee also helps by bringing down the inflammation. But the ice pack should only be applied within 24 hrs of the injury. After that, only use heat.
