Dislocated knee cap. Go see a physical therapist?

My 13 yr old son, dislocated his knee cap when walking. It went right back in. Its been 3 weeks and he is running in track and exercising with no pain. It stopped hurting in under a week as he as able to walk normal without a brace. Is this ok, or is there any reason I need to take him to a physical therapist? He's doing stretches we found online to strengthen the knee.
