First you need a proper rehab program after your knee has been evaluated by orthopaedic surgeon with possible MRI to check for damage to the cartilage and possible chipped of piece of cartilage. A program working on the inner (medial) quadriceps muscle is needed to help stabilize the patella and the use of a patella brace to help hold the patella centrally would be beneficial during the healing.
