would a compression shirt help with arm and shoulder pain/instability?

Prob not: As an orthopedic surgeon who treats many patients w/ shoulder instability i would say there is no proven benefit to wearing compression shirts for instability . In season football players w/ unstable shoulders may be helped by wearing 'harnesses' which limit abduction( movement away from body) and external rotation.Best of luck!
