  • shoulder-sample Pain in the shoulders is common and can be difficult to fix as most shoulder injury occurs over an extended period. Other shoulder injuries happen quickly as a result of a fall or commonly a car crash where the belt runs over the shoulder. Physical therapists are well equipped to fix shoulder problems but they take time and the client has to engage in the rehabilitation exercises to  gain the maximum from their treatment.
