Shoulder Pain

Shoulder Pain is very common in today’s age especially in Singapore whereby most workers are desk-bound jobs. After countless of hours staring at their monitor combine together with stress, this leads to high tension in the neck/shoulder area.

At Healing Hands Chiropractic Singapore, our main goal is to get to the root of the issue and handle it with precise non-invasive techniques that help relieve pain altogether. Remember, you do not have to live in pain as Healing Hands Chiropractic Singapore has the solutions.

Shoulder Pain Facts

  • Suffering from pain costs Singapore more than $8 billion each year according to the studies commissioned by GSK Consumer Healthcare, was conducted by global insights and consultancy firm Edelman Intelligence.
  • In general, as mention in an article by Singapore General Hospital, pain has tremendous influence over a person. It may cause mood swings, depression or anxiety, sleep disturbances and inevitably a night of poor sleep often translates to greater pain the next day and vice versa.

"Remember, PAIN is a warning signal and is the LAST symptom to appear. If left untreated, it becomes CHRONIC"

Common Causes Of Shoulder Pain

Tear of shoulder muscle

This is a partial or complete tear of a shoulder tendon either from overuse or trauma. The management is similar to the tendonitis. In a severe case, the cortisone injection can be used for pain relief or surgery if there is a complete tear.

Inflammation of biceps tendon

The tendon of the biceps travels through the head of the upper arm. This tendon can be inflamed after a repetitive use causing deep, achy pain at the front of the shoulder. Treatment is rest, ice, heat, stretches and other modalities provided by physical therapists.

Pinched Nerve

The nerves branch out from our spine and when there is a pinched nerve traveling out from the neck region it is called cervical radiculopathy. When the spine goes out of the position or disc herniates, the nerves get pinched. This often presents as sharp pain, numbness, tingling down to the arm and tight and stiff shoulder. Treatment is heat & ice, rest and appropriate care from physical therapists.

Frozen shoulder

There is no identified cause of frozen shoulder but the good part of this condition is it will resolve itself eventually. People with frozen shoulder complains of stiffness and immobility. The severity of pain varies from person to person. Physical therapy can help to shorten the duration of the condition.

Wear and tear of the shoulder

As we age the bones in our shoulder region wear out just like the rest of our body. This is called degenerative joint disease which is coming from wear and tear of the joint. When the joint space narrows and two bones grind on each other, people will feel pain, stiffness and swelling over the shoulder with clicking sound. To manage the condition, avoid the motion that aggravates the symptom and use ice or heat to reduce the pain. Physical therapy can help with strengthening and stretching the muscles to restore the range of motion and manage the pain.

Neck Sprain

Neck sprain is damage to the muscles or ligaments of the neck musculature usually after a whiplash. People can feel sharp, ache or swelling over the involved side neck and shoulder.

To manage the condition, apply ice, heat, rest, massage and stretches to minimize the pain.

Inflammation of shoulder bursa

Bursa is a small fluid sac within the shoulder joint which acts as a cushion and minimize the friction between the joints. When an individual overuses the joint, the bursa becomes inflamed. Some common presentations with bursitis are deep, achy, swelling and aggravated by overhead activities. Management includes ice, heat, rest and appropriate exercises and

stretches prescribed by the physical therapist.

Shoulder Instability

This is when the head of the upper arm partially slips out of the shoulder socket causing pain and feels like the joint is going to give away. People with a history of dislocation or repetitive use of shoulder tends to have this condition. For instability, it is important to strengthen the rotator cuff muscles to stabilize the joint.

How To Shoulder Pain

Exercise – We should avoid sedentary habits. Regular exercise to maintain fitness using a combine different type of exercises such as weights, cardio, and stretching.
