One injury that can take a long while to heal is a dislocated shoulder.

Personal injury solicitor in Bunny, recovering from a dislocated shoulder
Your shoulder was probably put back into position at the hospital during a process called reduction and you were probably awake whilst this happened – it can be very unpleasant. Then you will need to rest your arm in a sling for a few weeks.
Physiotherapy can help greatly with your recovery, you can speak to your personal injury solicitor in Bunny about claiming for your travel and car parking expenses incurred when attending physiotherapy appointments. Bunny is a rural area and you may have to travel quite some distance to get the treatment that you need.
The physiotherapist will teach you some gentle exercises for your arm and your shoulder. If you don’t follow the advice that you are given by your doctors and physiotherapists you will not be able to prevent stiffness and pain. The exercises also strengthen the muscles around the shoulder which will help to support the dislocated joint.
If you find the exercises are becoming too painful then you can use an ice pack on your shoulder before you start the exercises and even take some painkillers. Painkillers will allow you to carry out the exercises properly and make them more likely to work! As you recover, the exercises will increase the movement of your shoulder joint until it reaches your pre-accident level. This is different for everyone. Little and often is the golden rule for shoulder exercises.
