a person with a shoulder dislocation should have seen a physician, and this advice should come from the physician or a physical therapist.
There are not only things to do but also not to do, and generic recommendations here can potentially do harm.
Hello John O. Paxson,
You will want to get advice from your doctor and physical therapist. Be sure not to hurt yourself; be careful and stay in your pain free range of motion. Do not work through pain, the pain is there to tell us something is wrong. Get instructions from shoulder injury professionals.
Best of health,

What is important in any dislocation/subluxation injury is to know what may have contributed to the injury. You wouldn’t want to do things that might increase the chance of reinjury. So, first you need to know what the condition of the shoulder structures are. And addressing movement and postural contributors to the issue are also important. As I have no idea about these things, I can’t begin to advise a course of action.
