Shoulder Pain Treatment in Singapore

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

A muscle imbalance may cause shoulder pain, postural problems, limited your 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 fibre to lengthen and remain tense.

Many activities such as working on the computer can cause your shoulders 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 can promote healing, and combining it with strengthening exercises can reduce the development of chronic weakness and minimize the development of degenerative conditions from overuse, posture deviation and sports injury.

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.

Most of the time, you do not need any further testing. However, 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 body examination done by your doctor. The severity of your injuries may require further diagnostic testing, such as:

  • X-ray
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
