recurrent dislocated shoulder issue

I have had my left shoulder do an anterior {normal} dislcoation spontaneously for many years. No trauma or accident, etc involved whatsoever. Until I can finance complete surgical repair, I am thinking there must be some way to address {not necessarily prevent completely} whatever is happening in the shoulder area that precipitates a sponstaneous severe shoulder dislocation, and make some effort to forestall or resist spontaneous dislocations.
For instance, I wonder if shoulder muscles are relaxing, if the bone is moving, what is going on that makes the shoulder predisposed to spontaneous dislcoations? then if we know that, it seems that would be a logical starting point.
I need help. Last time I was lying in bed at 8 am and the shoulder just popped out. Major pain.
