In brief: Depends....

The treatment of shoulder dislocations is based on whether or not it is recurrent (more than one dislocation) and why it dislocated.
Some shoulders dislocate because the ligaments are loose, and some because the ligaments or "labrum" is torn. Some people are treated with physical therapy, and some need to consider surgery.

In brief: Fix?

Initial or multiple dislocations? Traumatic or atraumatic? Fx present or not? Usually you can do pt if dislocation happened at an older age.
If younger more prone to repeat dislocations and may need surgery. Needs evaluation.
