Results: while searching for texts, a total of 123 research papers were found, after deleting 11 identical titles, 112 abstracts were chosen for reviewing. After analyzing the abstracts, 79 research papers were removed and 33 research papers were selected to be read fully. After reviewing of the full-text research papers, 21 research papers were removed and 12 research papers were selected from among the research papers that were very closely related to the subject under study. There are many functional tests, but few have been studied to evaluate the RTS after a shoulder injury.
