Treadmill Running - Knee Lock

I have been running on a treadmill for the past few months. Recently, I have experienced my right knee stiffen and almost lock while running. It causes me to stumble a little, but I'm able to keep my pace. Afterwards, my calves and ankle are sore. I've been able to run 5+ miles on the treadmill before, but now I'm struggling to conistantly get to 4 or 5. I had surgery on that knee for a dislocation in 1999 and then had a lateral release in 2006. Is there anything I can do to help me be able to run on a treadmill?
