Swim: If and when you are able, swimming is very good for many musculoskeletal misalignments. Muscles have memory and it takes consistent effort to change their positioning.

More PT: Mainstain of tx for diagnosis of scapular dyskinesia is therapy, with strengthening/reeducation of periscapular musculature.
For longstanding symptoms ths may require months of supervised therapy as well as an independent home program. Bottom line: don't get frustrated and stick with program. If diagnosis is in doubt seek second opinion from experienced shoulder surgeon.
