    Ahhh, dislocated shoulders are touchy, especially in 16 year old football players. IF you don’t let the shoulder rest and form some scar tissue it will dislocate again, and again and again. Then he will have to have surgery to correct the chronic dislocation. Avoid any movements like the back crawl as in swimming, or reaching behind him. The doc may have an idea for some sort of bracing to limit those types of movements. If I were his mother he would not be playing football this season.
