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.

Common Conditions of Shoulder Pain

What is Shoulder Pain Physiotherapy

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.

I was recommended by my spine specialist to have my physio sessions at Core Concepts. I started my sessions on 29th April at the Harbourfront branch. My condition has now improved greatly and I now, no longer need to do a weekly session. A big thank you to my therapist Ms Lenia Teo . She is excellent, very knowledgable and taught me exercises/strength training to help me in my journey to recovery. Also I would like to commend Ms Daphne for her excellent front desk service. She never fails to greet her clients with a bright smile and she remembers the clients name. Very impressive indeed. Very grateful to have met an excellent team of therapist and staffs at Harbourfront. Thank you.

Fantastic place - Yee Lin who minds the front desk is friendly and jovial, exuding warmth when you step into the clinic! Sylvia is very motherly she “scolds/nags” cause she really cares about you, she explains conditions meticulously, providing you concrete exercises to minimise future reoccurrence and wants you to get well. Grace is gentle, thoughtful takes time to go through my issues, finding the cause and resolving it. Jonathan is very patient in guiding me through the workout plans which did wonders to my shoulders and back.

Comprehensive range of treatment. I had a lower back injury and was prescribed sessions with the physiotherapist, massage and functional training. These have helped tremendously to not only treat the immediate issues, but also care for it myself moving forward so that I don't have to land back here with similar problems.

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.

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!

Honestly I do look forward to the session every week! The physiotherapists and other staff are very accommodating, efficient and professional. It does take awhile for my body to adapt and improve but I always felt better after every session. The therapists helped me understand well what the root causes to my pain are and how to overcome it with postures, simple to advanced exercises which are great, as I don’t have to be reliant on them in the long run.

If you are looking for a physio that takes a holistic approach this is definitely the place to go. They not only offer physio but also massage, Pilates and functional training. They all work hand in hand based on the program created by the physio.I m so happy that I found them to work on my lower back problems.

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?

What to expect during your first physiotherapy appointment

During your first session, your physiotherapist will find out more about your shoulder and perform an assessment to accurately diagnose the cause of your shoulder pain. After determining the cause of your shoulder pain, your physiotherapist will help to relieve the pain and come up with a treatment plan that best suits your lifestyle and treatment goals. Our objective is to resolve the root cause of your pain so as to prevent a recurrence of the problem. 

You do not require a doctor’s referral to make an appointment with us. No x-rays are required as well, but if you have had one done – feel free to bring them along for your appointment. We provide a comfortable change of clothes at our clinics as well for those of you who may be coming from work.

Your first session will be 45 minutes long, subsequent sessions will be 30 minutes long. The number of sessions required depends on your condition and treatment goals which would be discussed with your physiotherapist during your initial consultation. Each session is $135 (before GST) and you are able to claim the cost from your insurance provider if your coverage includes physiotherapy treatment. Do contact your insurance provider for further details as each individual’s coverage differs.
