Someone here with more knowledge than I, might be able to give you a more specific fix, but I had some knee pain in my trailing leg my first few months riding. I made a change to the angles on my bindings, ( my case, I went a little more symmetrically ducked) I changed from a +21/-9 to +18/-12. It helped.

You might try playing around and finessing your binding angles a bit and see if a small change there helps. I've also been reading in various posts that canted bindings can help with relieving knee pain. Worth checking out!
