Shoulder Pain: Reach Further Again
Are you experiencing Shoulder Pain? Physiotherapy could be the solution. Shoulder pain is one of the more common regional pain syndromes that affects around 26% of adults at any point in time. Using the same repetitive movement or manual labor may also cause shoulder pain, even athletes could over stress their shoulder muscles or joints.
Common reasons such as injuries or over usage of the cartilage are one of the few reasons why people experience shoulder pain. The shoulder has the widest range of motion and thus, is a particularly complicated joint that is more vulnerable to damage as compared to other joints. Shoulder pains are usually a symptom of something much more several that could be taking place. If you do experience shoulder pain, it is important to seek treatment or further advice from a certified doctor or physiotherapist before the issue deteriorates.
Physiotherapy is the treatment of injury, disease, and disorders through physical methods such as exercises, massage, and other treatments. Physiotherapy does not include any medication or surgery to help alleviate patient issues but is able to refer you to a specialist if necessary.
A physiotherapist is able to alleviate these pains through a plethora of treatment techniques to restore, maintain, and help prevent impediments towards the patient’s mobility, function, and well-being.
How can Physiotherapy help with Shoulder Pain
Having shoulder pain that lasts for more than a few weeks can be a hindrance to your daily activity. Some activities such as wearing a t-shirt can be a daily pain. Apart from the physical toll on your body, living in constant pain can also impact your mental wellbeing negatively. A physiotherapist will be able to accurately diagnose the root cause of your shoulder pain, relieve the immediate issues and come up with a treatment plan to ensure that the pain does not recur. This will ensure that you will be able to get back to normal functioning levels as quickly as possible.

Wonderful place, very friendly front desk staff and I should say Jessie was great.
Very sweet service. Ken does a good job at following up with his clients!
great therapy sessions! very helpful and effective!
Popped by Core Concepts recently for injury to my back/neck region, and I’ve seen significant improvement since then! I greatly appreciate how detailed and meticulous the guys at Core Concept are in diagnosing, providing consult/explanation/practical tips and treating the injuries. Scheduling appointments are relatively convenient as there are various channels (eg call, SMS) to pick from, and the automated SMS reminders are useful of keeping track thereafter. Receptionists and Therapists are generally pretty friendly yet professional, which makes for a conducive environment to get treated at!
My go-to place to not only provide pain relief but long term solutions as well. From Physiotherapy to remedial massage to pilates- all bases are covered.
Great place to get my issues fixed. Physio and massage sessions were both so good. Front desk girls Nina and Carol are very polite, friendly and always helpful to get my appointments sorted out.

Core concepts is a one shop stop for all bodily issues you have: physio, massage and functional training. When I got to know them I got diagnosed with slip disc. Pilates did no longer help and three surgeons told me the only option is surgery. Now, 2 years later I can take an intercontinental flight without pain, swim more than 1000m, even started running 5km and WITHOUT SURGERY. Thanks Sam, Kelvin and team!
Effective therapy through knowledgeable and experienced therapist . Good ambience .
Experienced,empathic and flexible therapists. Helpful front desks executives. Homely environment!

Everyone is very professional and helpful at Core Concept. Physio Xue Ting and Private trainer Rohini have helped me to manage my chronic shoulders and neck pain. I am 80 % better!
Came for a massage session with Jessie & it was a fantastic experience. I was blown away by her service & massage skills! The front desk ladies Carol&Nina are a bunch of cheerful, helpful & pleasant people. Will definitely recommend Core Concepts to my family & friends! Keep up the good work guys!
The staff here are very helpful and polite. Really appreciate all the help that we have received. Especially Samuel and Carol.
This is hands down one of the best physiotherapy places in Singapore. I have been working with Lynn for a few months and she has been absolutely brilliant about fixing my immediate issues while helping me work towards long term goals. The front desk staff is super nice and very helpful in working with your schedules. I can't recommended them enough.
Helpful and effective sessions
I highly recommend Sylvia Ho.
Treatment at Core Concepts has been great! I was treated by Sylvia and Jessie to release the pain. Highly recommended
Under Dr Sylvia's care and remedial masseuse Jesse, I've been able to manage crippling back and hip pain during pregnancy. Highly recommend them if you experience discomforts during pregnancy
I get my back treated by Sylvia mainly, I struggled with an injury for a couple of years. CC has helped me return to sports, something I thought I'd never be able to. The team here is lovely and welcoming, I recommend giving the clinic a shot, especially if you have any persistent injuries.
The only physiotherapist that solve my problem and make sure I feel better before she lets me go. Cheryl is really good. Love Core Concepts cos of her! Thank you, Cheryl!!

Beauty of this clinic is that it’s in town and can visit them before or after work/lunch. Effectively dealt with my backpain and gave very helpful advice. Worth the money and will recommend!
Very professional and caring Therapists. My left foot has been hurting for months. After 3 sessions with the therapist, 80% of the pain was gone. However, the remaining 20% still lingered on. They then had me do the functional training. After few sessions, I am left with only 2% of the pain and I am being discharged. The team is very professional and effective. Thanks everyone!
Came to see Xue Ting with a broken shoulder for the last 6 weeks and was impressed with her attentiveness and ability to make me feel me feel comforted in my condition . Very dedicated and good therapist indeed .
They adopt a scientific and personal approach. The therapists put in a lot of effort to diagnose the issue before attending to it. Overall, I would strongly recommend their professionalism and methods.
Friendly and really professional service! I immediately felt welcomed the moment I stepped into the clinic! The physio offered me great advice beyond what I had asked, which allowed me to have a deeper understanding as to why I had my issue in the first place. With this kind of service, I would honestly recommend this physio if you are serious about getting better.

Look for Soo, he is a great physiotherapist . Always communicating and always asking for my feedback. I’m on the right path to recovery all thanks to Soo. Two thumbs up.
Xue Ting has been working on my troublesome QL, hip girdle - basically the whole left lower kinetic chain! She has been patient, strong and cerebral in her approach to my 48 year old compensatory mechanisms. Her strong massage will finish with an assessment of muscle imbalance and poor activation with finally a retraining back to healthy movement.I’m impressed! Thanks Core Concepts!
I went from barely understanding physical therapy for injuries, to highly recommending Core Concepts to friends and family for their aches and pains. Ken was knowledgeable, patient and explained symptoms and consequences in a simple, relatable manner. I hope more people will come to understand how physio is a much better alternative to short-term painkillers.
The physiotherapist here explained the problem very well and provided me with exercises that helped improved my condition.
I have been experiencing great pain on my shoulder coupled with occasional numbness on my arm. Thanks to Ken Liew, I felt so much relieved after my first session. He was very patient and knowledgeable and had definitely made my 1st visit to a physiotherapy clinic a very memorable one. Thank you so much Ken

I have been experiencing knee pains lately especially walking up and down the stairs. The pain was so bad that I was very concern. I chanced upon CoreConcept on FB and book an appointment with them at Camden Medical Centre. My therapist was Ken Liew, he is very professional and knowledgeable. He did a thorough job to assess my condition. To my surprise I felt immediate relieved on my knee after the first session with him! Amazing! Looking forward to my next session. 😊
Hi I am Sally and I am in my late sixties. I have endured a year of thigh(joint) pains and thought that it must be due to old age. Visited Core Concepts at Novena and after only 2 sessions, my condition improved so much that I was able to climb stairs easily again. THANKS to my Physiotherapist Samuel Ong who is extremely polite, professional and knowledgeable.
I have had several sports related injuries and Core Concepts has saved me and put me "back to new" each times! The therapists are excellent - knowledgeable and professional, and the receptionists (Carol, Adiqah and Rin) are always friendly and helpful. They even give me oreo cookies for my children! 🙂

Extremely friendly staff and therapists! Folks Novena Square are just simply smiley and happy. Coming here towards the end of the work day always brings up my mood. Therapist and coach are fabulous. My condition improve so much that I can even start to train up some of my predominately unrealized problems. Highly recommended!

I go to Novena and Cheryl is my therapist. She was upfront from the get go about my neck condition. I liked her honesty and said we'll give it a try. I was better after 4 weekly sessions and continued to go to her every 2 weeks. With her help I am in a better condition, had to put in effort on the exercises she taught me as well.
Li Hoong is a very dedicated sports massage therapist and functional trainer. Her ultimate goal is the client's holistic well-being. Highly recommend.

i have tried different physiotherapy sessions with almost 10 physiotherapists in india and in Singapore, my back pain was treated well by CHERYLL, with God's grace , i was pain free only after Cheryll attended to me. Thank you Cheryll and core concepts for the great experience.
I am working with Yiren on my knee after my ACL/MCL reconstruction and recovery has been good! He does a thorough job to assess my progress each session and challenges me to push myself to get to various milestones. He's extremely friendly and helpful despite my many questions. Thanks!
After many different physio and massage sessions in different places, my experience with the core concepts team has been the best. I started seeing them for sports massage, and now for my knee rehab. The level of care and attention makes me want to do more for myself. Isn't this most important when one tend to slack off with the prescribed exercises?
The best physiotherapist ever. Cheryl is really good. Doesn't shortchange me of time and make sure I feel better before she lets me go. The front desk staff are great too. Very accomodating and friendly. Thank you Carol and Farrah. Only thing if they can give instructions to how to go to their place will be great. Usually only unit number but do give some details like mrt exits and directions to lift and such will be excellent. Coz I almost got lost in 2 different places. Overall still love core concept because of Cheryl! Thank you Cheryl!!
Easily the best physio clinic I've been to.
