It used to not do this so often, it first dislocated 5 years ago in a skiing accident and after that it would happen like once a year playing basketball or something. This past year I messed it up again skiing, it took like 20 sec to pop back in and after that it's been popping out all the time. Last week I was holding a door and sneezed and it popped out. When this originally started happening before this year I remember my shoulder would be sore for at least a week afterwards and I could barely move my arm, now when it pops out it hurts really bad for a few minutes and is kinda sore for the next day or so but I can at least function. It's totally affecting everything I do, when I play basketball now I try not to use my right arm so much because the littlest jerk will pop it out, it usually pops back in now in a few secs. I think I might need surgery but in the mean time what kind of stuff can I do. I like to lift weights and when I bench it feels kinda pinchy but not to the point where it would keep me from lifting. When I squat the position that I put my shoulders in is very uncomfortable, I really can't do it anymore because I can't move my arm that far back behind my head. Any docs or PT's out there with good insight?
