(HealthDay News) -- When your knees hurt, you may be tempted to rest instead of exercise. But regular exercise can help strengthen your knees and ease pain.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons recommends:

  • Start exercising slowly. Over time, increase repetitions or weights as you feel stronger.
  • While some discomfort is normal, pain isn't. Stop if you feel pain.
  • Don't push yourself so hard that you're in pain the next day.
  • Consult with a therapist or doctor about how often to exercise, and the types of exercise to try.
