Treatment involves isometric exercises and knee-strengthening exercises for fortification, as well as massage therapy. If you are prone to knee pain, it's important to cease activity when pain surfaces. It will also help to run on different surfaces, wear shoes that fit well, and not to run with weights, since this stresses the knee. Also, learn to listen to your body and differentiate pain from exertion. Never continue running when you're in pain, since this will aggravate the situation.
