I would stop doing what ever it is that dislocated shoulder. Go to uptodate.com and read more. Then discuss with your team.

Do not worry about "twitches", as this is merely a reaction to the injury. However, your problem involves 2 shoulder dislocations and now there is further risk of repetition. An orthopedic consult should be sought. Sometimes, a surgical procedure is needed to stabilize the shoulder joint.
