Knee pain and swelling

Patient : At one point of time, my knees got sore after kneeling. They took 3 weeks to heal. After that, whenever I try to kneel it hurts. They also get swollen after standing for long time. The pain is concentrated just below the knee cap where it meets the shin bone. I feel i'm disabled because my knee won't work properly. I love to dance, work-out etc. but I cannot because of my knee. I'm only 37 years old. My doctor advised hot fomentation but it only gives temporary relief. Kindly advice.
Symptoms:  Knee pain, swelling
