Dislocated Shoulder

I have previously separated my left shoulder twice and had 3-4 partial dislocates over the past 6 years. Each time I went to the doctor (didn't go every time) I was just told to rehab it.

Last Friday, I was boxing in a sparring match and had a minor dislocate, it went right back in place with minimal pain so I continued. Ten minutes later while throwing a left hook, I had a full dislocate that required my trainer to pop it back into place. I have full mobility and just a small "pinching" pain in my shoulder. Since the pain is minimal should I rehab like I have previously or is it time for an xray/MRI?
