More than likely, you're carrying a bit of tension in the posterior rotator cuff muscles that are pushing your arm forwards in the socket, and that makes the shoulder want to dislocate forwards out of the socket too. This is typical of surfers, and I too have the same trouble.
Best thing you can do is follow your doctor's instructions and rest up for a while, but ALSO see a physiotherapist. Don't worry about a chiro, as you need to just get some exercises to stretch and strengthen your rotator cuff muscles to stabilise the shoulder joint. Manipulation of the joint by a chiropractor might feel good, but won't be addressing the root of the problem which is your rotator cuff being stronger at the back than at the front of the shoulder joint.
