i went to the sports doc today and he said my shoulders were too far forward? and that i've been neglecting the front of my shoulders and that has led to my muscles been left vulnerable to injury. i can't read his writing (as most doctors) but he recommended physio (pretty cheap at school) and it says something about infrospn tendonitis. can't read it at all. but is the physio worth it? i don't feel any pain any more but thats how i felt last week and i ended up going back and it was killing the next morning again.

shoulders too far forward?

I would say go back to the doctor and get him to explain what he means to you. Generally the shoulders being too far forward is from a combination of poor posture and a lack of solid back training. But if you don't understand what he's advising then you should call him and ask again. None of us can diagnose a problem like this over the internet--and I would conjecture that very, very few of us have the credentials to do so in person.

neglecting your front delts? What'd you mean? Usually the delts too far forward comes from doing TOO much front delt work haha.
Definitely go to the physio.
As for exercises, which they may tell you anyway, train your rear delts and upper back more.
For rear delts...face pulls (elbows out) or bent over lateral raise
For upper back...face pulls as well (elbows in), any type of row etc, mid-back shrugThe complete shoulder and RC injury thread, written by myself:

Form is paramount.
Focus, focus, focus.
