Shoulder pains are usually a symptom of something much more several that could be taking place.

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

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!

Had my physio session for my glutes injury and it has been a great experience. They do not just focus on the injured part, they find the root cause from your lifestyle and make sure that we work on the core concepts and build the foundation to prevent recurring injuries. Very patient to explain concepts in an understandable terms. Highly recommended.

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.

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!

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?
