In brief: Biomechanics

Joint Hypermobiliy trait mostly female Many these women have genu varus or valgus, whereby patella rides non-linearly during knee flexion/extension.
Knee can be shifted from genu to linear function by placing medial or lateral shoe insert; depending whether foot pronation or supination is desired; shifting vector of upper body weight as it meets leg. Medial insert for varus. Lateral for valgus.

In brief: Brace.

Next step is patellar restraining brace.
If this does not work i would send you forward to the orthopedic surgeon for eval.
