Usually how bad is the pain after your shoulder dislocation gets put back into place?

In brief: Pain varies

Shoulder pain after a glenohumeral reduction (put back in) is typically less than while it is out of place.
For first time dislocations the pain level tends to be higher, but individual tolerance must also be considered. After any dislocation/ reduction you should have an x-ray regardless of pain level to rule out any damage to the bony structures that may have occured during the trauma.
