I am also facing the problem of dislocation. My doctor told me that they fixed both my shoulders by using screws.

I am a volleyball player. My shoulder got dislocated during my second year in college. When I went for treatment they took an X-ray and told me that I need to take rest and that's it. After 5 months again I started playing and again my shoulder got displaced but it returned to its original position after 5 minutes. After that I quit playing volleyball and now my age is 23 and I am still facing this issue. I went to many doctors but still I didn't find a solution.
