Shoulder Treatments

Can I Treat Shoulder Pain On My Own?

Using a cold compress or ice pack can minimize swelling in the early stages post-injury to relieve mild and acute shoulder pain temporarily.

Patients with severe or chronic shoulder pain, however, should consult a shoulder surgeon in Singapore to diagnose the cause of their discomfort and seek suitable treatment options.

Do you know shoulder pain can lead on to other mobility problems if not treated promptly?

Schedule a detailed shoulder examination if you are experiencing persistent shoulder pain.



Our orthopaedic specialist will examine your shoulder, and test the stability and range of motion in your shoulder.


He may also examine your neck and head to ensure that your pain is not due to a pinched nerve in the neck.


Diagnostic procedures such as an x-ray or MRI may also be ordered for detailed assessment.

Let us help you reclaim your active lifestyle with proven shoulder treatments.

Treatment Options

Conservative treatments for mild to moderate conditions
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication to reduce pain and swelling
  • Corticosteroid injection to reduce pain and swelling
  • Activity modification to lessen stress on the shoulder
  • Physiotherapy with hands-on techniques to treat movement restrictions and alleviate pain
Surgical Treatments for severe conditions

Shoulder arthroscopy is a minimally invasive operation requiring anaesthesia, and is recommended to treat many shoulder conditions for optimal outcomes with minimised risk and discomfort.

An arthroscope (a small camera) is used to examine inside your shoulder joint and miniature surgical instruments are used for repair and reconstruction of affected parts.

Common arthroscopic procedures at our shoulder clinic include:

  • Rotator cuff repair
  • Removal or repair of the labrum
  • Repair of ligaments
  • Removal of inflamed tissue or loose cartilage
  • Repair for recurrent shoulder dislocation
Recovery After Surgery

To protect your arm from moving while the repaired structures heal, you will most likely use a sling for 2 to 6 weeks after surgery.

Once the initial pain and swelling has settled down, our Singapore specialist in shoulder conditions will start you on a safe and progressive tailored therapy program to help you return to your normal activities with less pain and greater mobility.
