What is Cause: It is important that you find out the cause of your recurrent problems with the shoulder with respect to a specific anatomic cause. If you have not had a recent mri, i would recommend an arthrogram/mri where they put dye in the shoulder first followed my mri. Conditions: marfans, ehlers danlos syndromes which are associated with joint laxity. See your pediatrician for evaluation.

Unstable Shoulder?: It is difficult to tell if you are still experiencing symptoms or are concerned about how much you can safely push your shoulder. If you are still having symptoms, please consider an evaluation with a shoulder specialist that routinely treats global or multidirectional instability. http://www.theshouldercenter.com/shoulderpain/2012/shoulder-specialist/surgeryspecialist/.
