Smile Dislocated patella 8 weeks

So I dislocated me knee cap almost 9 weeks ago now, and I am still struggling with my recovery. I have had X-rays and an MRI and there are no torn ligaments, no bone or cartlidge damage, only mild distruption to one of the ligaments (which is normal). I do have slight tilt on the patella as well as subluxation at 40degrees. I have been going to physio since I did it, and have made barely any improvement. When I first started, I had about a 65degree bend and was 15degrees off straight. Now I have about 110degrees bend but I'm 20degrees off straight. My knew still feels really unstable, still swollen despite anti inflammatories, and I'm in pain when I try to push my
Knee beyond its current range of movement.

I have just started Bowen therapy a few days ago, and I have my second session next week.

I am desperate to get back to normal. I'm an obsessively active person, and could very well be starting my active career in
The next couple of months.

Does anyone have any quick fix advice, or even just things that could help
Improve my current mobility ?

Thank you!
