... it looks as if it's shifting out of socket on its own and if I move it in a jerking motion upwards it puts it right back in socket. A doctor told me that my shoulder slightly dislocates on its own and that I shouldn't worry about it I also have scoliosis and pain on my left shoulder all the time due to these problems can someone explain to me what's wrong please? also I can't lift my shoulder with this problem above my collarbone into the air unless I force it and it pops and hurts. I get pain in my neck and my shoulder and hold back on my left side seem to move in a way that they're not supposed to which is also where my scoliosis is. what can I do to figure out what is wrong so I'm not so much pain constantly & everyday.
You need to see another doctor for a 2nd opinion. They should of at least prescribed physical therapy for your shoulder. My daughter dislocated her knee playing soccer. She was standing still and shifted to turn and run. Her knee cap ended up above and too the left of where it was. She did PT for 6 months. She had also dislocated her shoulder and she pops it back in. When she was younger her dance teacher would bend her like a pretzel. Found out she had an issue with the muscles in her joints. PT was the best thing for it. It helped a lot.
Dancnbar gave a very go analogy.
The shoulder I’d a ball-and-socket Joint. It’s important to keep that joint healthy.
Surrounding the joint is muscles and tendons. These are what keeps the ball and joint intact. They also give power to your arm and range of motion.
It sounds like you have a tear or a weak spot in this system.
You may be partially dislocating your shoulder.
I would see an orthopedist who specializes in shoulders. He may suggest surgery to bring total mobility back to that are.
