Shoulder pain may begin in any of the structures in and around the shoulder. These include muscles and nerves as well as spinal vertebrae and the
cushioning disks of the neck. Shoulder pain may also come from regions near the neck, the upper back, elbow, upper arms and wrist or hand.
Swiss DolorClast® method treatment may provide relief where other therapies have failed and should be considered as a viable non-surgical solution.
Calcific tendonitis is a disorder characterized by deposits of hydroxyapatite (a crystalline calcium phosphate) in any tendon of the body, but most commonly in the tendons of the rotator cuff (shoulder), causing pain and inflammation. Pain is often aggravated by elevation of the arm above shoulder level or by lying on the shoulder. Other complaints may be stiffness, snapping, catching, or weakness of the shoulder.
"Frozen shoulder" which is the layman term shoulder pain and complaints may be stiffness, snapping, catching, or weakness of the shoulder. Actual Frozen shoulder is an incredible lack of motion and inability to move and use the arm. In reality the true condition is much more severe and the recovery period may be up to 2 years if left untreated, with treatment the time may be reduced.
There may be intermittent pain or discomfort when there is inflammation from a partial tear in the tendon of the a rotator cuff tendon or results from the repetitive tendon pinching between the bones of the shoulder joint when raising the arm overhead. The tendonitis results in pain and weakness with loss of shoulder range of motion.
Also called painful arc syndrome, is a clinical syndrome which occurs when the tendons of the rotator cuff muscles become irritated and inflamed as they pass through the subacromial space, the passage beneath the acromion bone. The pinched tendon starts to fray, and may result in an eventual tear if treatment is not started soon. This can result in pain, weakness and loss of movement at the shoulder.
Biceps tendonitis is inflammation of the long head of the biceps tendon. Longhead of biceps tendonitis is an inflammation or irritation of the upper biceps tendon. This strong, cord-like structure connects the upper end of the biceps muscle to the bones in the shoulder. Pain in the front of the shoulder and weakness are common symptoms of biceps tendonitis.
Bone spurs also called osteophytes -- are benign, bony bumps that usually form on the joints surface & margins due to excessive wear, on the shoulder, the joints that may be affecting movement include: glenohumeral, acromio-clavicular and sterno-clavicular joints.
Trigger points are isolated focal points located in a taut band of skeletal muscle. When touched, these trigger point produce pain that may be felt in a location far from the actual point. Trigger point pain often accompanies chronic musculoskeletal disorders or mimic more serious conditions for example trigger points in the neck should or back muscles like may mimic an shoulder problem because the elbow falls within the referred pain pattern, scalenii, infraspinatus, latssimus dorsi.

We had a fantastic experience with Dr Lily Leong at Back2Life clinic! She's patient, genuinely great with kids [and] my son's asthma has improved under her care. Highly recommend this clinic!
Dr Stakes cares more about your health and well-being than about making money. I knew he was a really trustworthy chiropractor because of what happened during my first few treatments with him.
I was suffering from shoulder pain for more than half a year and felt extremely frustrated and helpless. Dr Neil Stakes' treatment and advice helped me to heal the pain and gave me confidence that I could work towards living a pain-free lifestyle.
I was referred to Dr Stakes by a trusted friend. I shared with Dr Stakes why I finally came to see him and expressed my commitment to get well. And it was comforting and assuring when I hear him expressed his commitment to help me get well.
Dr Neil Stakes is amazing! Only a few sessions with him, my girl’s motor Tics reduced and after a few more sessions, her Tics is completely gone and she’s able to lead a happy typical life again. He’s really good with kids too, my 6 years old girl loves to visit him ????
I have been a patient of Back II Life since 2006 when I was pregnant with my last child. Dr Leong has been very crucial in helping my body deal with a challenging pregnancy, and then post labour, during and after cancer. Many underlying issues have resolved over time. I have less and less need for remedies as my health has slowly built up over the years with the help of Dr Leong, with only some basic maintenance needed. Back II LIfe truly helps people to get back their life!
