I have constant knee pain and need medical advice

Patient : My name is Shelby, I am 19 years old. About 7 years ago I was bashed in the back of the knee with a tennis racket and tore a ligament in my knee. I was put in a brace and on crutches for 6ish weeks. On and off through out the years it has always given me troubles. About a year ago I was diagnosed with patellofemoral pain syndrome, and was also told my knee was off its track. I was put into physical therapy for a while, and it helped some. I was also given a brace. But none of this seems to be working for me anymore... What should my next step be?
