Relieve neck pain in 4-6 sessions with AMP Lab, no surgery required!
These days, neck pain is a common experience for people in Singapore.
Understanding how your neck functions and the causes of neck pain is crucial to treating your neck condition.
When patients receive the necessary information to make an informed decision about their health, they are often less nervous about their condition and more satisfied with their care.
Causes of Neck Pain
The neck is one of the most mobile portions of the spine, making it possible for the head to move in nearly every direction.
Unfortunately, this flexibility can also make you more susceptible to neck pain and neck injury in many cases. Common causes of neck pain involve the soft tissues (neck muscles, ligaments) or the cervical spine (spinal nerves, discs or facet joints and bones).
The most frequent type we see is mechanical neck pain, which can stem from muscle strain, excessive loading due to posture, ligament sprain, or wear and tear that does not align with the normal ageing process.
Sometimes, neck and shoulder pain can be caused by injuries, such as a whiplash injury or a herniated cervical spinal disc.
More rarely, neck pain may indicate a more serious underlying condition, such as
a condition in which the spinal cord is compressed within the spinal canal.
usually following a history of trauma like a fall. In such cases, pain will be felt, and neurological symptoms will also be exhibited.
commonly known as a pinched nerve, occurs when the spinal nerve root is compressed.

Treat Neck Pain with Our Neck Pain Specialist Singapore
AMP Lab provides premium care with a proven success rate to those seeking relief from chronic neck pain. Our sessions encompass consultation, diagnosis and a customised treatment plan that combines different therapeutic modalities and tailored exercises.
The First Session
We begin by conducting a physical examination to derive an accurate diagnosis, along with thoroughly obtaining your medical history where necessary.
In certain circumstances, imaging tests such as a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan may be required to determine the extent of damage accumulated in the neck region. We can advise if and when a scan is needed in cases like these.
We will be there for you every step of the way to address any questions or concerns so that you understand your condition fully and propose the correct treatment.
According to your condition, we will propose the right modalities and treatment methods to assist you in your health goals. This may include:
The physiotherapist carries out this technique of mobilisation to improve facet joint mobility and restore overall range of movement of the neck.
Postural correction begins with identifying the lifestyle factors that cause uneven and excessive loading on certain joints within the neck.
Postural re-education and ergonomics specific to your occupation, activities and hobbies will subsequently be advised to you.
The aim is to distribute the load more evenly throughout the joints. In this manner, excessive loading which leads to accelerated wear and tear at certain points is reduced, thus slowing down the rate of degeneration.
Finally, our physiotherapists will prescribe the appropriate rehabilitative exercises for your recovery. This will support the healing of your condition by strengthening the neck muscles and preventing relapse.
Following Treatment Sessions
Our physiotherapists will carry out a thorough consultation and examination each time you return for your follow-up session. Follow-up sessions are essential as they determine your progress, and any adjustment to the treatment will be rendered to progress you along your healing journey.
