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.

Elite Spine Team

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.

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.

Elite Spine Team

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.

This means our patients are able to achieve more complete recovery in a shorter amount of time than at other centres!

I found out about Elite Spine Centres after struggling with neck and shoulder pain and migraines. I have never tried chiropractic before. I had my own doubts and concerns. But decided to give it a try anyway based on the good review from Google. From the first moment I reached out, the team has always been very helpful and friendly. I came with lots of questions about my condition as well as the chiropractic itself. Dr. Mike understood my concern. He patiently explained every time I have questions, about my progress and also any other symptoms/sensation that I noticed after starting treatment. At the initial process, he gave a gentler adjustment, until I was more accustomed to the experience. He even went the extra mile to provide me with resources to help me exercise/train my shoulder. The comprehensive treatment, stretches and exercises given to me helped my symptoms a lot. They haven't completely gone away as this is a long process. But I haven't taken any painkiller again since then. Overall, great experience. I've even recommended this place to friends are experiencing similar issues. Thank you Dr. Mike and team :)

Very professional and caring team. Mum’s spinal issue improved after trying all sorts of therapy elsewhere. Knee problem has always been an issue too and i have seen great improvement.
Since am working in healthcare industry for 30+ years, rarely I will comment on medical treatments & Outcomes due to lot of unknown factors. However, this time I felt compelled to write this review for sharing my personal experiences with Dr Mike and his professionally trained team from Elite Spine Care centre. First, up all I have had a pleasant treatment and impressed with customized therapy and clinical services provided over 16 sessions at timely manner. They never acted like they didn’t have time for me. I received extensive help at any time from Dr Mike and all clinical and admin staffs, which I really appreciated. Since am in Technology side, my job required extensive work on IT systems, cause of that end of the day I used to have severe pain on my right neck, right shoulder and right leg. I got this pain from late 2015 when I attempted to lift a heavy object Since then I had a weaving Scapula on right shoulder & radiating pain on right neck and arm. I had numerous number of consultations with Ortho and spine specialists, MRI and CT studies and Physiotherapy sessions start from 2015. However, pain had increased steeply and even led to muscle loss on my right arm and shoulder joints. I could not bear the pain and decided to search for alternate treatments such as Ayurvedic, Traditional Chinese massage, accupuncture, etc at various places. By God’s, grace one of my friend introduced Dr Mike and intially signed up for 16 sessions at discounted and offordable price I would like to say what a positive experience I had with Dr Mike and his team. They explained everything to me and made every visit more comfortable and worry free. After 4 sessions, I have realised the benefits and now I do not have much pain and recovering from muscle loss and scapula weaving. I have planned to extend the treatment for another 1 year for stabilise the condition. Right now am looking forward to have regular session with Dr Mike and his team. Once again my sincere thanks to Dr Mike, his therapists and all Clinical and administrative staffs for the respect and care that you have showed me. You are always very special people in my heart

Dr Mike and the Elite Gang have been amazing hosts in my chiropractic journey. Dr Mike often emphasises that chiropractic isn't a one-day miracle cure. Chiropractic is about the re-introduction of movements in which the body has not utilised and maintaining them. In the beginning, I was looking for a treatment that would help elevate the ache between my shoulder blades from physical activities. Dr Mike provided a fluid program which resulted in an improvement on my shoulder mobility and the ache reduced gradually. Eventually, my aim is to be more aware of my body structure and search for methods to improve muscle recovery after intense physical activities. Armed with skilled hands, new technology and a friendly, caring team, Elite Spine has provided me with an amazing care in my recovery and fine-tuning of my body. Thanks ya'lls!!

I had severe aching from the lower back down to my feet, it was so bad that I absolutely needed a massage almost everyday. Just a few sessions at Elite Spine made a huge difference and I could now walk/ stand for a long time and run abit without experiencing much soreness. Sleep quality also improved. I also like that there were home stretches recommended to improve condition and body posture. Doctors and staff there were very friendly, I could bring my toddler with me when needed. A tremendous improvement in quality of life, thank you!

Elite Spine Centre is one of the best & most well-equipped chiropractic centre located in SG. Dr Mike is extremely professional & well versed in his field. Having a vast knowledge & experience, he is able to diagnose the root of the issue & work up a treatment plan aiming towards having a lasting recovery instead of just simply "cracking" a few bones to treat only the symptoms temporarily. The team of awesome ladies at Elite Spine Centre, ever friendly & approachable, is always there to ensure that the patient's treatment runs smoothly throughout the whole process.

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:


  • Cervical Spondylosis

  • Degenerative Disc Disease

  • Herniated Disc

  • Arthritis

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.
