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.

Testimonials

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 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!

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. 😊

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.

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.
