A big contributor to knee pain and instability (besides having degeneration of cartilage and/or cartilage) is muscle weakness in the gluteus medius (the top part of your butt!). The glutes (gluteus maximus, gluteus medius, and gluteus minimus) are the powerhouse muscles of the lower body.
In order to better control your body when running, jogging, walking up and down stairs, etc is to make sure you perform stability exercises which include focusing on glute strength as shown in the videos.
When the glutes are strong, the knee is stable. When the knee is stable, you experience less pain.
MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!
The glutes also provide posture stability to the pelvis and lower back, and when they are strong, it takes stress off your lower back muscles and often reduces low back pain as well.
