I have the same pain post trauma when my knee popped out. It's the same spot, my knee cap but kind of off to the side. Mine too would pop out once every 5 years or so but I shake it off the next day. This time I tore the ligament that connects your knee cap (on the side) to the femur called the patellofemoral ligament. Surgery would have been the first option but I didn't see the ortho til 3 weeks later so now I am healing but I can't use my leg right and I start physical therapy. It sounds like you have patello-femoral joint problems (like me) and I guess the ligament isn't tight enough to keep your knee cap in place and is stretching every time it pops out ...or your knee cap and grove aren't working together causing pain from grinding and sliding.
yeah man i no how u feel it happens to me all the time, i got surgery on it and it hasnt happend for a year or so until today i started lifting with it and it just popped out, i dont really have any methods to help u except for to strenghten ur legs and dont do to much with your knee, but the same thing has been happening with my knees all my life, what it is is your ligaments are weak and are when you turn and go to the side and all that the knee cap moves to the side, sometimes it doesnt really do anything or hurt you but it has the potential to slice up and rip your ligaments, my advice would be to go to a doctor and get an mri, but when they supposedly fixed mine it felt good for a while until this happend, and when ever i seem to stretch my legs, it seems to actually make matters worse
