ANSWER If you have problems with your knees you should strengthen your thigh muscles (especially the rectus femoris - the main, big muscles in the thigh) by way of exercise.

If your thigh muscles are stronger they will absorb the pressure that comes onto the leg when you're walking (for example) in stead of it going to the knees.

If you can, join a gym. They have great machines to work those part of your body and there will always be someone around who can help you out.

If not possible, there are exercises you can do yourself at home as well. Good luck!
