In brief: PT program

Physical therapy would involve a programs or range of motion, and strengthening.
The therapist would probably focus on the quadriceps (a thigh muscle) and especially on the vastus medial;is (part of the quadriceps). The therapist might also show you taping that can be used to offer a bit of adde stability to the patella.
