I am not an expert, but I use to have knee issues when I worked out. I would suggest using the stationary bike or the elliptical machines to get your cardio. These are lower impact ways to work out. Unless you have some issue that causes your pain, it is my belief that your pain will go away after losing a few pounds or just doing it for a few weeks. Also make sure you are stretching because you'd be surprised how much tight tendons can hurt. Good luck!

Have your gait checked and buy the most appropriate shoes from a good shoe store (i.e. not the Footlocker) like a running shoe place. My back and hips and knees hurt when I started to do cardio on a treadmill. I discovered that the shoes I was wearing weren't right for my feet and gel, instead of air, absorbs the shock of the foot striking the ground better! I haven't had a probem since. The suggestion to do the bike or elipical are good...less shock to your body and you can always work you way to the treadmill!

I recommend swimming and weight training. Swimming is THE lowest impact and weights will build you up for the treadmill!
