Arm Pain and Physiotherapy Singapore

For appointments/enquiries, please SMS/Call/WhatsApp 96402670

Arm pain refers to any kinds or types of discomfort or pain in the arm, hand and shoulder region, essentially from the shoulder all the way to the fingers. Your arms consists of bones, muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, nerves, skins, blood vessels etc; of which, all can be injured, infected or traumatized to cause arm pain.

Pain in the arm may last for a short moment, or be present constantly, or it can be there intermittently, coming on and off. It can be at a very specific location, or it can affect a wide area, or it may travel or radiate to other locations. Arm pain types includes aching pain, stabbing pain, tingling pain, electrical pain, throbbing pain, cramping pain - the list goes on.

If you have pins and needles and tinglings, with or without the presence of a burning sensation - this is referred as paresthesia. The spectrum of pain experience varies from being a simple discomfort or minor irritation, or it can be moderate to severely painful that it may disrupt the movement in your hand, and stop you from using your hand actively.

Causes of arm pain are from a wide variety of causes, including injury by trauma or blows, to internal problems such as cancer or nerve degeneration, or repetitive strain injuries. In some cases, pain in the arm may be referred or radiate from other parts of the body such as the back and neck, due to problems such as trigger points.

A typical physiotherapy, hand therapy or occupational therapy session will start off with an in-depth assessment of the nature of the onset, factors that aggravate or contribute to the problem, previous medical history, and any other pertinent or relevant medical information. Then we will test physically and manually to assess exactly what is the core problem, and treat it accordingly.

Commonly, we will first decrease the amount of pain experienced by providing pain relief exercises or modalities such as Ultrasound or Cold Therapy to accelerate healing and decrease the amount of inflammation and pain; then moving on to deal with increasing the functional movements and range of motion, then strength and dexterity using Exercise and Movement therapy. We may also use joint Manipulation & Mobilization whenever appropriate.
