Yeah, Ive had the same injury going on for about three years now. Since the first incredibly painful time my arm dislocated from my shoulder socket, it has happened probably around 12 or 13 times since, once when I first started snowboarding and hadn't learned to keep hands tucked in while falling at 25mph. I have found that it happens less when I stretch really well before activity. And I have been trying to change my sleeping habit too becuase I like to raise the arm on whatever side of my body im sleeping on over my head, and lay my head on my forearm. This is probably what dispositioned me to this injury, but surgery is a little too drastic, and the brace is not for me, so a good stretch before and after goes a long way!
