It's curable: If you really have a history of patella dislocation, it is something that may be successfully treated with physical therapy, but it may require a surgical procedure to help realign the patella. It is important to have an orthopedic exam and possibly an mri to differentiate a subluxation problem from a dislocation.

One: One dislocation is reduced and rehabed to avoid recurrent dislocations challenging to treat avoiding surgical treatment for knee cap problems is the best coursec in my opinion low sucess rates makes this risky.

Yes, if properly...: If properly treated yes. But you may have contibuting factors which make it occur. Being knock kneed can potentiate this, as can hypermobility. A Chop-pat knee strap can help!
