Shoulder injuries are prevalent among athletes who engage in repetitive arm movements or occurs during your everyday activities.

When To See A Shoulder Specialist

In the event of an acute injury that is causing significant pain, seek medical attention immediately. 

If the pain is bearable, it may be safe to rest your shoulder for several days to see if it gets better. If it does not, or starts affecting your day-to-day life, then you should definitely head to a doctor.

Dr James Tan will diagnose your condition after a full clinical evaluation and imaging tests. All these can be done on the same day at the same place.
