In brief: Therapy

After a thorough medical evaluation to rule out serious instabilities and causes, the initial treatment for this problem is typically a short period of rest followed by physical therapy to strengthen the stabilizing muscles that hold the shoulder joint in place.
Protective/restrictive braces can also be utilized depending on the athlete's sport. Surgery can be an option if all else fails.
