Experiencing shoulder pain when lifting your arm above your head or rotating it back and forth is a sign of swelling or damage around the shoulder muscles and joints. This may affect daily tasks, such as reaching for an object on a shelf or brushing your hair to more demanding activities like exercise and sports. 

At the Elite Spine Centres, we recognise the impact of persistent shoulder pain for many individuals. Whether you’re an athlete, a gym enthusiast, an office executive, or someone experiencing shoulder discomfort, our Functional Correction Method is a uniquely designed chiropractic treatment for shoulder pain that allows individuals to reach their maximum potential.

What Are Common Causes of Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain is a complex issue arising from various underlying causes. The following are six common culprits of shoulder pain. 

Intermittent and sudden pain

Rotator Cuff Injuries. The rotator cuff is a group of tendons and muscles stabilising the shoulder joint. Tears or strains in the rotator cuff due to repetitive motion or sudden trauma cause pain, weakness, and limited mobility.

Numbness or tingling

Frozen Shoulder or adhesive capsulitis progresses through stages of pain and stiffness. It occurs when the shoulder capsule thickens and tightens, restricting movement.


Tendinitis or inflammation of the shoulder tendons is due to overuse or repetitive activities. This condition leads to pain, swelling, and reduced range of motion.

Weakness of the muscles

Bursitis is the inflammation of tiny, fluid-filled sacs called bursae, which protect the shoulder joint and help it move. Trauma and overuse lead to this painful condition.

Weakness of the muscles

Arthritis affects the shoulder joint as we get older. For instance, osteoarthritis involves the gradual breakdown of cartilage in the joint, resulting in pain, stiffness, and decreased mobility in the shoulder.

Weakness of the muscles

Nerve compression in the shoulder leads to radiating pain down the arm. This pain may come from thoracic outlet syndrome or nerve impingement.

Comprehensive Treatment For Shoulder Pain: Functional Correction Method

At Elite Spine Centres, our signature Functional Correction Method involves four significant combinations of pain management techniques to provide the ultimate relief solution to your shoulder pain under one roof.

  • Modern chiropractic techniques – Our techniques align the spine, indirectly affecting the shoulder girdle’s function to alleviate shoulder pain. Additionally, this improves nerve function by relieving pressure on nerves, contributing to shoulder pain. 
  • Manual soft tissue therapies – Muscle tension and knots contribute to shoulder pain. As a result, our centre employs soft tissue therapies such as myofascial release, trigger point therapy, and deep tissue massage to release tension in the muscles surrounding the shoulder. These therapies provide relaxation, improve blood flow, and address tightness and adhesions in the muscles and fascia.
  • Customised rehabilitation exercises – Our tailored rehabilitation exercises are designed to strengthen the muscles supporting the shoulder joint. These exercises boost muscle stability and reduce the risk of future injuries or pain recurrence. 
  • Latest conservative healing technologies – Advanced technologies such as Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT), Radial Shockwave Therapy (RSWT), Whole Body Vertical Vibration Platform (WBV), and more reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, and promote tissue healing in the shoulder region. 

With cutting-edge diagnostic technologies, such as X-rays and MRI scans, our chiropractors provide a more accurate assessment of the shoulder’s condition to develop precise treatment plans. We provide personalised shoulder pain treatment in Singapore, allowing patients to avoid the frustration and higher costs of going to multiple treatment centres.
