Yay, more baby pictures! I had lots of physical therapy after knee surgery (not a knee replacement) a few years ago, and the biggest thing I learned was that strengthening the underlying muscle groups can go far toward relieving joint pain. No pounding or even aerobics necessary; think stretching and flexibility, regularly (particularly of your core trunk or "powerhouse" muscles if you speak Pilates). I find it utterly dastardly that regular exercise (as opposed to regular doses of butt-sitting) seems to do the trick for me, but it keeps my other bad knee from hurting, and if I can avoid a second round of surgery in my 30s with Pilates tapes from EBay, it's the best $15 I've ever spent.
