There is something called RNT or Reactive Neuromuscular Training which I learned about when I certified for the Functional Movement Screen or FMS.  A typical RNT protocol is to cause facilitation of the error with some tool like a band, and then you resist the error to imprint the proper neuromuscular result, which will hopefully stay without the tool later.

So your mini band is pulling your knees together into error, which you resist and create the correct motion, and is proper form for your knees so that you don’t have pain any more.
