Q: What is the difference between try to force it open with his shoulder and try to open it with his shoulder ?
A: Like sonny said, "forcing something open" could mean that said object, offers a lot of resistance to being opened, and therefore requires "force"; or it requires a specific method that needs to be employed for it to open, but the agent trying to do the opening employs 'brute force' instead to accomplish this.

"Try to open it with his shoulder" does sound slightly awkward, since in this context, the only way one can open a manhole with one's shoulder is by using force, and so the other construction sounds more natural.

The body massage for 30 minutes was $40 and I thought not bad. A receptionist told me to go to a separate room and take my clothes off. There was a gown, so I put it on. Then a therapist lady came in and told me take it off since I was not going to take a shower. I was embarrassed and hesitate to take my underwear off even though she said I needed to take off everything. At last, she started massage while my underwear was on. The room was in Asian atmosphere and the therapist was not able to speak English well. She used oil and it was the first time for me to have oil on my body. It was so great!
