The first exercise to help relieve an achy knee is a quad set. This will not only help strengthen the quad muscle, but it will also help loosen up the knee joint.

Next is a heel slide. This is a great way to get some bending or flexion in the knee. Using a strap can also help get an extra stretch.

The last three stretches are with a strap for some of the muscles that cross the knee joint. A hamstring stretch, IT band (or tensor fasciae lattae) stretch, and a quad stretch should help get rid of some of the achy pain around the knee.
