Strengthening: Really no such thing as "mild" dislocated shoulder, it either has dilsocated or it has not. The treatment for 1st time dislocation typically is non-op with therapy to restore motion and optimize the strength of the muscles which also help stabilize the shoulder. The exception is the high risk pt (collision athlete) who may need surgery after 1st episode. Recurrent dislocators need surgery.

Shoulder dislocation: As dr. Corteen said there is really no such thing as a minor dislocation. What i think you might be taling about is a subluxation. This is when a joint feels like it is going to dislocate. The patient will actually feel the joint trying to dislocate, but it doesn't completely dislocate and will often return to normal position. This however, is a problem and needs to be addressed.
