Brief Answer: Due to muscle spasm. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX Thanks for your query. I have read your query in detail. Pain you get after sitting might be due to muscle spasm and stiffness. To get rid of these, do knee strengthening and gradual & gentle stretching exercises to relive the spasm. Do moist heat fomentation of the painful area so as to increase the blood supply to the underlying muscles and also the relax them. Gentle massaging of the painful area with pain killer creams may also help. Yo can take anti -inflammatory drugs like Tablet Motrin 1 tablet as and when required to relieve pain. I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query. For future query, you can directly approach me through my profile WWW.WWWW.WW Take care
