Shoulder rehab typically consists of resistance training, calisthenics, and some plyometrics as tolerated, but you should consult a dr.
It happened when I was throwing a backhand drive. It felt like my shoulder rolled up and out and then back in the joint. I never heard or felt a snap or felt any tearing sensation though.

I have had my share of surgeries but my shoulder surgery of january of 2009 is still on the mend and by far the hardest for me to recover from. The shoulder sometimes and in my case is very difficult to heal. Local golfers ask me is the shoulder ok now and i say nope not even close. They cant believe it takes so long to heal but it does . They are a bitch.

just because I am lazy and dont want to read through all the other suggestions there are some light weight lifts that you can do to help your shoulder (I know because I have blown my shoulder out in baseball)

Also can be done bench style, use lighter weights like 15lb dumbells

There are also rubber band workouts for pitchers in baseball that would help you as well

I dislocated my shoulder once back in college, hurt like a s-o-b! Sorry to use harsh letters. I had to do some rehab exercises with the team trainers and swim with a kickboard for two months until it healed up.

It sounds like you have a more serious recurring shoulder problem and really need see a specialist. It may be awhile before you can play again, and should start from scratch with your form and 150 class discs once your dr. has cleared you to play again. Sorry, but it doesn't sound good.

I actually just finished physical therapy for a messed up shoulder. My issue sounded different than what you describe, but I did have the same numbness sensation. That is what prompted my trip to the doctor. For me it was a pinched nerve, nothing serious, but it can be a sign that something is very wrong. All the exercises I did (over the course of a month) did not involve weights. A lot of it was pretty simple (yet painful) stuff. I had to do one exercise every hour, every day for a month. Several others were incorporated in over time and were done three times a day. Eventually I "graduated" to the set of rubber bands that people mentioned above. They come in varying resistences and you work your way up them.

You definitely should see a doctor. The "rolling" you describe sounds bad...could be a dislocation or something along those lines. Stuff like that needs to be taken care of or it'll only get worse with use.

Dont know if you got what you were looking for but i have some expertise in this and ill give you my advice.
I dislocated my shoulder very badly 4 years ago. After 2 years of slings, physical therapy, countless x-rays, weight lifting, weight training, isometrics my shoulder would still consistantly "partially lax" (what happened to you). I went through and had the surgery.

The surgery has both pros and cons. If you have it done through just your local surgeon or even ortho surgeon what they are litterally doing is drilling holes in your shoulder to run stitches through to tie your muscle back into the correct place so that it can grow correctly. Unfortunately the success rating is roughly 60% on this type of surgery. Where i live i was able to travel 2 hours to have the surgery done with a new tequnique that uses a special drill that drills curved holes into your bone. This surgery has over a 90% success rating.

Either way your going to have weeks of not moving your shoulder, months of shoulder pain and **** tons of rehab but after a year my shoulder i can truly say is strong as new.

MY ADVICE: the only thing you can do to try and help your shoulder is isometrics, its what they use to rehab pitchers arms and basically what it does as apposed to regular weight lifting is that it gradually builds the muscle and densifies, this muscle is truly the only thing that will stop your shoulder from rolling out over and over.

You can get the pitcher rubber bands with hand ties that you clip to a fench and do exercises/ you can get surgical tubing tie it in a circle and do exercises/ or you can get different strength bands to work with.

Hope this helps. PM me if you need any further advice

Shoulder surgery is much easier to rehab than knee surgery is. Range of motion is more difficult with a shoulder though. Good luck. There's always Decca if you feel you need to strengthen the muscles post surgery, it will also chill the ache. That's the quickest way to get back, but probably not the healthiest.

If your shoulder is chronically dislocating on your follow through, I would guess you have some tears to the cartilage in the socket that surrounds ball on the humerus bone. Surgeons typically will open up your shoulder and scrape, and bang around creating the formation of scar tissue, which replaces the damaged cartilage and in turn cups the humerus socket similar to how it did before the cartilage damage. Range of motion will be your biggest hill.

I weight train likes its my job, and I wish it was. But if you have a shoulder problem weight training is not the answer, it might be the worst thing you could do. You need to let it rest and recoup. Maybe therapy if you continue to have trouble with it. However a few low weight type exercises may be able to help but I am not expert on those exercises and therapies to be giving advice on how to do them.

Your rolling sounds like sublexation (sp?), if you have chronic sublexation you could have a torn Labrum (very bad.) Lets hope not, a doctor will probably get you in PT to strengthen the muscles that hold your shoulder in place. I had to have surgery on my torn Labrum (among other things) and the recovery process is indeed quite awful. Hopefully PT can fix it.
