Trigger a Training Montage

I planned to ask about finding low-cost help for depression. But I'm asking about joint pain instead.

I've got me a case of the crippling depression. And yeah, in every thread about treating depression on the cheap, working out is the first line of every other answer. Doesn't seem to matter what, so long as it's something.
Sounds great. I'm all for it. But the trouble is that I've not done much working out in awhile, and I've developed some persistent aches and pains.
The sharpest pain is in my right knee, but it's colonized my right hip and lower back as well. The discomfort is enough to make finding a tolerable posture to sit or lie in troublesome. I would like to get these pains sorted out before I begin anything too vigorous.
So I'm asking for some good stretches and exercises to get my back, leg, hips and knees ready to work. I haven't any money to spend on this project, so gym memberships, classes and the like are right out.
Thank you for your help.
