Hello, Knee dislocation is a major injury. I think you probably dislocated your patella( knee cap). Acute dislocation of patella can be reduced by others or sometimes reduces by itself. A single dislocation episode might not require anything but a knee brace and exercises. But dislocation can get recurrent due to various reasons. please consult an Orthopaedic surgeon.
