You need to see an orthopedist. If you can move your knee cap out of place yourself, then that might mean that the next time you play sports, it will dislocate again.  Most people that I have known who had this condition had arthroscopic surgery to see what is causing the dislocation and have it repaired so that the same thing does not happen over and over again.  So my recommendation is find the best knee surgeon in your area and go see him/her.  You will probably need an MRI and/or CT scan.
