Shoulder injury, arm popping through socket, exercise, changed diet. Is diet affecting arm?

Hello, I am 16 and I had a snowboarding injury to my shoulder (pulled rotator cuff ) last February which later my doctors told me to go to a physical therapist. The therapist gave me exercises to strengthen which I have done. After a two month period my therapist told me that I was cleared to play sports which in my case is tennis. Now, months later after the injury, as I was playing tennis my arm popped out of its socket (which is what happened on my snowboarding injury). My parents believed that this is because of my new diet which consists of pinto beans, any form of lean meat, and vegetables but i give myself allowance to get whatever junk food i want one day of every week. I have been on this strict diet for 1 month to date. Can my new diet really be affecting my injury?

I do not think that diet has any thing to do with it. bI'll even there can be two reason of your arm popping out. First that there may be a ligament injury which was missed previously. This type of injury is called Bankart lesion. It may be afresh injury picked by you. .so my advice to you is that you should get a shoulder MRI and see if there is some lesion like this. If yes then you better go to a repeat surgery.
