The first line of: Treatment should be evaluation by a sports medicine doc or orthopaedist. Dislocation can often just be subluxation and can be easily treated with physical therapy. If your shoulder is trly coming out of joint to the point where it has to be physically reduced back into place, therapy wont help and you are likely going to require a ahoulder stabilization procedure, either arthroscopic or open.

Dislocated shoulder: Effects of a dislocated shoulder are that you have torn the capsular ligaments surrounding the shoulder and these need to heal first once reduced, and followed by an orthopedist. If after healing there is any instability you may need an MRI and possible arthrocopic shoulder surgery.
