I think you have quadriceps weakness followed by any injury or knee replacement.thats why you are not able to straighten you knee have to do exercise for quadriceps strength and endurance.for pain relief take hot water fomentation for 15 min twice a exercise and isometric exercise of quadriceps, last 15 degree high sitting knee extension. in supine lying straight leg raise. prone knee bending these all exercise are available in physiotherapy clinic and will definitely relief your pain increase your ability to straight your leg without the any help
