Did you know that one in 10 Singaporeans suffer from chronic pain? Have you experienced pain that does not go away? Has it interfered with your daily activities, work, and/or caregiving duties, affecting your quality of life?
There is a tendency for people to dismiss joint pain and body aches as part of ageing. Some would rather self-medicate or endure the pain quietly while others may postpone treatment. The truth is: Anyone can experience musculoskeletal pain. The pain can be caused by trauma to a particular area due to auto accidents, fractures, sprains, dislocations, sudden jerking moments or overuse of certain muscles. It could also be due to poor posture, repetitive movements or lack of physical activity due to a sedentary lifestyle or a degenerative condition of the spine.

"I used to feel pain in my left knee and hip when walking. I also had a hard time getting up from the floor. I could not sleep well at night. My daughter suggested that I try out the Musculoskeletal Clinic. Physiotherapist Lee Ying was professional and I felt comfortable sharing with her about my routine. She was also patient and would encourage me whenever I made progress. I never knew that my left leg was not as strong as my right leg which led to poor posture and pain. I feel much better now!"

"I had earlier tried different kinds of treatment but my lower back pain persisted. I decided to seek help from a physiotherapist. I am glad the pain went away after two months! What I like is the feeling of not being rushed during my therapy session. My physiotherapist took time to understand my lifestyle habits to identify the root cause of pain. She also gave me good tips and showed me techniques on how to support my body to prevent injury when I do sports."
- Mr Chong ZJ, 36, Management Executive
"I used to suffer pain all over my body, especially around my arms and knees. It got so bad I found it hard to walk. I have always wanted to seek help from a professional. My physiotherapist at the MSK Clinic helped me address my pain issues. I am happy with the service and the fees are affordable. I feel much better now! I intend to share with my neighbours and hope they can seek help from the MSK Clinic too!"
- Mdm Alegna Ow, a retiree in her 60s who suffers from osteoporosis
"My shoulders hurt each time I try to lift my arm or when carrying grocery items. After washing clothes, I feel the pain and can't lift my arm fully. I also have knee pain when walking up a slope. The pain got so bad I decided to see a physiotherapist instead of trying to treat it on my own. I have learnt a lot about what's happening to my body and was taught exercises to strengthen my muscles. Only a therapist knows the specific exercises needed for various problems. I feel much better now."
- Mr Sam Stephen, a retiree in his 70s, a stroke survivor
"My frozen shoulder caused a lot of pain and discomfort. As my arm felt stiff, it was hard for me to cook and do housework. I could not sleep well and I was always feeling anxious. Thankfully, my husband encouraged me to seek help from a physiotherapist. I was taught exercises to target my weak areas. Although I am still recovering, I know what I must do to get well."
