Shoulder Pain Treatment and Specialist in Singapore
Shoulder pain is discomfort or pain felt in the shoulder area, which is a complex and highly movable joint. Sprains, brachial plexus injuries, fractures, dislocated shoulders, rotator cuff tears, and disorders such as Adhesive Capsulitis (Frozen Shoulder) can all cause shoulder discomfort. The causes might include overuse, damage, or inflammation of the shoulder structures. Treatment options vary depending on the underlying reason and may involve rest, physical therapy, pain management, anti-inflammatory medicines, and, in certain cases, surgical procedures. It is critical to determine the precise cause of shoulder pain in order to develop an appropriate treatment strategy that will relieve discomfort while restoring normal shoulder function. Consultation with a healthcare practitioner is essential for an accurate diagnosis and suitable therapy.
