Consult Orthopedist.: Hope you had a thorough Physical Therapy and you are continuing it at home to strengthen your Rotator cuff to prevent the recurrent dislocation. Are you doing the repeated activities where in your shoulder joint is repeatedly used like Pitching the ball?

Probably because it: is still at least partially dislocated, or other additional residual tendon or muscle problem persists. Anatomy always builds based on pre-existing anatomy. Thus once a change in anatomy occurs, that alters the subsequent anatomy which will no longer match the previous. Orthopedic surgeons work to get the major structures back near their original locations but are unable to restore the original.
