In brief: See therapist

@ your age the chance of recurrent dislocation is very high~(90%).
If you haven't seen a certified therapist i would so u can work on a rotator cuff and scapular stabilizer strengthening program. Sometimes the use of a shoulder 'harness' temporarily during sporting activities is helpful. At this point it is prudent to see an orthopedic surgeon before u do any more damage to your shoulder.
