Neck Pain Treatment Singapore | Neck Pain Specialist Singapore
Don’t Let Chronic Neck Pain Affect Your Life Anymore!
Neck pain is something many of us have experienced at one point or another.
However, in Singapore, neck stiffness and aches are so standard that it is almost recognised as part of the ‘normal ageing process.’
The normal amount of stiffness or aches at any time should be zero.
However, a stiff neck is something even young Singaporeans suffer from, particularly among office workers and students.
It can feel like nothing can relieve your neck pain.
You may have been prescribed medication as a temporary fix or were offered treatments too costly or invasive for your preferences, such as trigger point injections.
But what if there was an easier, more effective way to relieve neck pain?
Often, neck pain is caused by strained neck muscles or cervical spine misalignments.
Instead of merely addressing your symptoms of neck pain, chiropractic treatment directly treats the source of your neck pain.
We identify and tackle the spine/body mechanics or nerves involved to treat neck pain, with a high chance of eliminating neck pain once and for all!
Experience True Neck Pain Relief with Elite Spine’s Non-Invasive Chiropractic Treatment
When it comes to effective neck pain treatment, we need to address the root cause of the problem, not just the symptoms.
You may think you can ignore your neck problems with home remedies unless severe pain arises.
At first, all you may experience is muscle strain from accumulated stress on the cervical spine (vertebral bodies and facet joints), nerve roots, and spinal cord.
If left untreated, this will accelerate the wear and tear process of the neck region, leading to the growth of bone spurs, narrowing of the spinal canal and spinal nerves exit, possibly causing cervical radiculopathy or more chronic pain later on life.
At Elite Spine Centres, we believe in more than suppressing symptoms.
Our professional team of chiropractors provide tailored treatment to improve your neck pain and restore your health and wellbeing to the way they should be.

As Seen In
Our Signature Functional Correction Method (FCM)
Often, pain is the way your body shows you warning signs that something isn’t operating the way that it should be.
Let us bring you relief with our Elite Spine chiropractic treatment strategy.
Our signature Functional Correction Method (FCM) combines the best in modern chiropractic strategies, soft tissue therapy, and rehabilitative exercises to address your concerns thoroughly.
Step 1 – Initial Consultation
At Elite Spine Centres, we firmly believe in creating a low-stress, patient-centric environment.
Our Doctor of Chiropractic will review your symptoms and health history in detail to understand better what may be causing your concerns.
We will work with you to address your symptoms and concerns, ensuring that you understand your condition before proceeding with treatment.
There will be no hard sales or excessively long treatment packages – we want to work with you, not against you!
Step 2 – Spine and Body Examination
A thorough physical examination will be performed to assess your spine and other relevant areas for proper bio-mechanics, possible injuries or safety concerns.
Orthopaedic or neurological tests, such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) or X-Rays, may also be performed if needed.
This will allow us to rule out possible underlying causes of neck pain and obtain an accurate diagnosis.
Most of our patients will be able to receive treatment on their first session once any potential safety concerns have been ruled out!
Step 3 – Doctor’s Report and Recommendations
The doctor will assess your response to the first session and review any studies which may have been requested (X-ray, MRI, etc.).
Based on the findings, a customised plan of action will be discussed with you to help you reach your treatment goals.
Compared to the typical approach of symptoms management via medication, doctors of chiropractic can deal with the problem right at the root.
That being said, chiropractic is not a miracle cure. In rare events that we cannot help, rest assured that we will help you find the right solutions for your neck pain.
Step 4 – Holistic Chiropractic Treatment
Treatment usually involves chiropractic manipulations to restore your body to its natural state and improve blood flow to soft tissues.
If needed, advanced therapeutic technologies may be used to complement your healing.
Your personalised, comprehensive treatment plan will also involve lifestyle advice to prevent your condition from recurring and rehabilitative physical therapy to restore proper long-term movement patterns and posture.

Learn More About Neck Pain
For our chiropractors to cure your neck aches, you have to help us understand.
The more you know, the more you can tell us, and the better we can personalise a treatment strategy to eliminate your neck pain!
What are the causes of neck pain?
Did you know that the full weight of your head upright (around 5-6 kg) is supported by the cervical spine, upper back and neck muscles?
The cervical spine allows the head to move in nearly every direction. Unfortunately, this flexibility also makes it easier to experience neck pain and neck injury in many cases.
The susceptibility of the neck to an injury can be attributed to a combination of factors:
Accidents or falls with blows to the head or body can lead to neck and shoulder pain.
Car accidents or sports injuries with short, jerking head or neck movements may cause whiplash injuries or lead to chronic issues of the spinal joints and soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia).
However, the vast majority of patients that come in with neck problems often suffer from poor biomechanics brought on by everyday habits.
Specific repetitive movements, prolonged sitting, and poor posture cause stress to slowly accumulate on the spinal nerves, leading to a stiff neck, pinched nerve or severe pain. Frequently, neck pain can also affect surrounding areas such as the upper back and shoulder blades.
Other less common causes of neck pain may stem from existing conditions such as:
Degenerative Disc Disease
What are the common types of neck pain?
Pain in the Side of Neck
This common type of neck pain usually indicates the need to make lifestyle changes.
The neck is a densely packed region of the body with many different tissues such as the spinal cord, muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, joints, and blood vessels close to each other.
Common factors that cause neck pain on either side of the neck include:
- Sleeping on your side with improper pillow height
- Extended use of handphones or computers in poor posture
- Poor mechanics (misalignment) of one or more of the facet joints in the cervical spine, causing ligament strain, muscle spasm and nerve irritation
- Trauma or injury such as whiplash
- Muscular imbalance in the neck, upper back and shoulder blades.
Neck Pain after Waking Up
Dealing with neck pain first thing in the morning?
Neck pain that surfaces after waking up are often accompanied by stiffness or tightness in the neck muscles and a lack of ability to flex, extend or rotate the head entirely.
This can be due to a myriad of factors, such as:
- Improper sleeping positions
- Mattress or pillow that doesn’t suit their body type and condition
- Tech neck
- Spinal misalignments and nerve/muscle irritation
- Scar tissue, “knots,” or damaged soft tissues from old injuries
- Weakened spinal column support
- Weakened postural muscles
- Arthritis of the neck
If these issues are left untreated, neck pain after waking up can become a chronic issue and even lead to permanent muscle degeneration in some cases.
What exercises can help neck pain?
No matter what range of symptoms you may be experiencing, your recovery plan will undoubtedly involve customised stretching and strengthening rehabilitation exercises.
However, we don’t advise patients to start exercising right away, especially not with just any regimen.
A detailed evaluation by our experts is critical before adding exercises to your recovery plan to make sure that each exercise is performed in the correct form and technique. Depending on the causes of your neck pain and individual factors (age, occupation, activity levels etc.), what may be helpful to one person may prove harmful to you.
Thus, before beginning any exercise programme, Elite Spine Centre advises having a proper evaluation with one of our experts trained in rehabilitation methods.
Generally, our soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia) should help us retain a nice balance between stability and flexibility.
However, as the years pass, our muscles develop imbalances, with some becoming too weak (stretched) and others becoming too strong (tight). Our professional expertise helps us identify the correct muscles you need to work on.
Furthermore, your exercises should change and adapt over time as your health journey progresses. Rest assured, we will tailor your exercise regimen for you—all you need to do is focus on your health.
A pain-free life is one call away.
