    Hi professor
    one thing that article didn’t talk about properly is about how critical fractured shoulder is and why if you have a shoulder pain caused by fracture you should start recovery quickly.
    Clavicle Fracture , Proximal Humerus Fracture and displaced fracture are the most important ones.

    Hi professor .
    I believe shoulder pain can be recovered easily as long as its not a fracture. 3 types of fractures that are Proximal Humerus , clavicle fracture and displaced fracture seems to most critical ones and should be taken care of as soon as possible.

    Greetings to Dr. Malehi I am niloofar khoshdel from Iranian University. Unfortunately, shoulder pain which can have different causes is very painful. And one of the common reasons is sitting at the desk and working with hands. Workshops, computer jobs and… And this article helps people with these jobs and other reasons to prioritize prevention over treatment and prevent severe pain and bigger shoulder problems with methods such as cold therapy, heat therapy, massage therapy, exercise, etc. Of course, if the pain becomes severe, the relevant doctor will check the diagnosis of several factors and with medicine or surgery, it will cause recovery to some extent

    Shoulder pain can be mild or severe.
    Mild pain can be caused by a small injury that can be easily treated.
    Severe pain can be caused by soft tissue tears or bone fractures and other things that are very painful.
    Pain in the shoulder area can cause problems in our daily activities and reduce the quality of life.
