Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain.

The pain may be due to age related osteoarthritis of knee. Kindly do thigh muscle strengthening exercises like sitting on chair and lifting the leg straight hold for 10 sec and then relax repeat for 10 times in day and evening. Avoid climbing stairs, sitting down crossed legs, squatting, walking on uneven surfaces, hope this will relieve your pain.
