I had problems with subluxation in both my shoulders. Mine hurt so bad I couldn't sleep. Every time I moved, the pain would wake me up. The ortho doc explained that I had a relaxed ligament structure in the joints that allowed the ball to slide out of the socket (partially) when my shoulder was in a weak position. Lay off the shoulders for a while and let everything heal. Use that RICE thing: Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. Then strengthen your rotator cuff -- do a search for rotator cuff exercises. When you do them, use very light weights or a stretch band (Theraband is what I got from the PT, but there are others). Since working on my rotator cuff, I've been pain and subluxation free for the last 10 years.
