Quadriceps strengthening exercises- Quad Clenches: Lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, Hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short Arcs: Lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight Leg Raise: Lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

You need to be evaluated for the biomechanics of your movement and correct any faulty muscle action or activation. You need a detailed assessment by a sports physiotherapist or an ortho physiotherapist for further suggestive plan of treatment.

Do you have any associated wt loss, affection of sleep etc ?

It may hurt sometimes due to hamstring tightness also. So try stretching the hamstring.

If you have increasing pain after exercise then stop doing it. Consult to your physio and tell your problom. Dry needling(physiotherapy treatment procedure) will be helpful for you.

28 yrs is too young to start rejoint or other ways, unlikely to be osteoarthritis at your age. Since pain has been for 6 months now, and its getting worse with exercises, I think you should go ahead with some more investigations and work on cause of pain. Intraarticular ligament injuries or some inflammation may cause the above symptoms.
