Overview

Shoulder is one of the most reported body parts in experiencing pain among office workers in Singapore. With the prevalence of shoulder pain and injuries, a thorough understanding of multiple treatment options is imperative for every rehabilitation therapist. 

Learning new methods to properly diagnose and treat both surgical and non-surgical shoulder cases can help to improve patient’s outcomes and provide long-lasting, positive results.
