Default Anterior Inferior Shoulder Instability

I have a client who has instability in the overhead position. She says when she puts weight overhead she feels like her shoulder is coming out through her armpit. She has a history of shoulder dislocation. A) does anyone know what muscles/tendons are weak here. B) Does anyone know of any shoulder stabilizing exercises that could help my athlete.

Have her see an orthopedic doctor and get assessed for a Bankart lesion/inferior glenohumeral ligament/inferior labrum tear.

Shoulder strengthening may help (I'd start with rotator cuff work and move onto to isolations then compounds) but depending on how bad the dislocations and instability are it may require surgery especially if your client wants to work out at any decent level of ability.
