Knee pain with buckling could be many different things like: arthritis, torn meniscus, patellofemoral syndrome, or bursitis. An examination by a medical professional might be the only way to find out exactly what the problem with the knee is and what can be done about it.
Some things you can do to help your knee is to wear good supportive shoes, use a cane or walking stick and ice the knee for 20 minutes three times per day.
