Maybe: If you truly had a dislocated patella i doubt you would be able to keep running! unless it popped right back into place. You have to get your quad muscle strong, the vastus medialis part of the quad strong to prevent further dislocation of the kneecap. You can do this by doing a straight leg raise with your quad muscle contracted. You can also get formal physical therapy from a pt.
