Are knee wraps any good or necessary when I'm squatting around 100kg? I have displaced my left knee couple times while running and I feel bit hesitant about squatting more than my own weight. My physiotherapist said that they are unnesseccary aid and musckes supporting knees get stronger without starps.

Stick with weight your knee can handle if you're having problems with it.

If you wrap it up it'll never strengthen properly and will probably explode or something.

Well I have been stuck around 100kg for while. I changed program from 5x5 to 4x10.
I'm really scared popping my knees while carrying weight. It already hurts enough without bar+plates on your back.

maybe try it in the smith machine first so you cancel out the balancing part and just focus on strenghtening the muscle with a little more isolation or even leg press for that matter?

I am a lanklet with rather small knees and I always use them on 5x5. Just know your limits still, use them for safety not to lift a shitload more weight.

Do NOT get knee wraps. Especially if your knees are fucked. Knee wraps have been shown in studies to cause deterioration of the joint. You could however, as others suggested get a pair of sleeves. I can recommend

Using the smith machine is a terrible idea, do not listen to the other guy. If you want to break through a plateau the general solution is lower volume+higher weight+more rest between sets. As for knee wraps, I don't really know.

Just use compression tights or sleeves, knee wraps are unnecessary unless you're a powerlifter pushing over 1000 lbs.
