Brief Answer:
Knee cap

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Well, weight loss is for sure a better way to get rid of the pain in knees but it is a goal set over long term. Meanwhile, you can wear a knee cap which avoids the joint from giving away and prevent jerky movements which can cause pain.

Also, do apply diclofenac gel whenever the pain is unbearable.

Hope, I answered your query.

Please do ask if any doubts.

Regards
