Shoulder Pain Treatment in Singapore

Sports Massage & Exercise Therapy For Preventing Injury and Ending Shoulder Pain

A muscular imbalance may cause shoulder pain, postural problems, and limited range of motion. Dysfunction or imbalance in one part of a muscle, for example, an overuse injury to the upper trapezius can change the balance of the shoulder girdle as a whole,  causing the lower trapezius fiber to lengthen and inhibited.

Many activities such as working on the computer will encourage the shoulder to be rounded forward causing thoracic kyphosis. Injury to the shoulder can lead to hypermobility, instability and loss of strength.

Sports massage therapy around the soft tissue will promote healing and combining with strengthing exercise can reduce the development of chronic weakness and minimize the developing degenerative conditions from overuse, posture deviation and sports injury.

There are various reasons for shoulder discomfort, such as rotator cuff tears, tendonitis, bursitis, frozen shoulder, or arthritis. Consult a pain expert at The Sports Massage Clinic if you notice increased pain and decreased mobility in your shoulder joint.

If your symptoms don’t improve with simple workouts and alterations to your daily routine, consult your doctor or physiotherapist for a diagnosis and treatment plan.

Do You Require Any Tests for Shoulder Pain Treatment in Singapore?

Shoulder discomfort isn’t always easy to diagnose. Other bodily issues might cause discomfort that extends to your shoulder. If you’re in pain or know you’ve hurt yourself, consult a doctor immediately.

Mostly, you won’t need any further testing. To accurately diagnose your shoulder condition, you need to have a doctor or physiotherapist do a thorough clinical examination of your body. Negative imaging scans won’t speed up your recovery.

The hospital will ask you to fill out a medical history form and have a physical exam by your doctor. The severity of your injuries may require further diagnostic testing, such as:

  • X-ray
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

What Are the Options Available for Shoulder Pain Treatment in Singapore?

Standard options for shoulder pain treatment in Singapore are:

  • The majority of shoulder pain sufferers begin therapy with self-help methods.
  • If your shoulder hurts, don’t sleep on it!
  • Use a heat pack to relax the muscles around your neck and shoulders.
  • Take a break from activities that aggravate your shoulder pain, such as heavy lifting and repetitive tasks, and address any issues that may be irritating your shoulder.
  • To keep your shoulder joint mobile, perform gentle range-of-motion exercises within your pain-free range. These exercises increase blood flow to the tissues and aid in healing.
  • Generally, paracetamol or ibuprofen may be used as a basic form of pain relief, but if your pain persists, consult your doctor about a stronger painkiller prescription.
  • It will take some time for your shoulder to get better, but don’t stress yourself out by setting unrealistic recovery objectives at home and work—pace yourself and don’t push yourself too hard.
