In brief: Quickly

In general, a shoulder subluxation means that the shoulder moves out of place but does not completely dislocate.
It takes 6-12 weeks for a tear that results from a subluxation to heal. However, tears to not always occur, and there may not be a healing time associated. Some patients live with shoulders that are looser. Some have no problem with looser shoulders.
