• Rotator Cuff tear • Frozen Shoulder • Dislocated/unstable Shoulder • Supraspinatus tear • Bursitis • Torn ligaments • Strained muscles • Shoulder Impingement • Arthritis
The shoulder is a complex area of the body, involving the arm, shoulder blade, collarbone, rib cage, neck and spine, as well as the many muscles and ligaments surrounding these areas. Pain or discomfort in the shoulder can be felt in a localised area or be spread out and even refer pain to the neck or down the arm.
While some injuries are straightforward and have a direct cause, others can be the result of poor posture, bad habits and other smaller injuries that accumulate over time. This complex nature of the shoulder requires a thorough examination and diagnosis to get to the true cause of your injury or condition.
• Tennis Elbow • Golfer’s Elbow • Tendonitis • Elbow sprain • Muscle strains • Bursitis
Elbow pain and injuries are most commonly related to overuse injuries. Named after their most common cause; Tennis/Golfer’s elbow are classic examples of overuse injuries as the muscle tendons that attach to the elbow become irritated and strained with repetitive movements such as a tennis or golf swing.
Elbow injuries can also be a result of trauma, heavy lifting or stiffness caused by excessive computer usage. Long lasting elbow injuries can also lead to carpal tunnel like symptoms and wrist pain.

There are 27 bones in the hand and over 100 ligaments, muscles and joints to make them move. When working properly the human hand is capable of fine, delicate movements as well as impressive strength. When it’s injured or aggravated it can lead to a lot of discomfort and disability.
The wrist and hand are most vulnerable to trauma from falls, as well as overuse injuries from repetitive movements such as typing, writing, sewing, etc. Symptoms can be pain, stiffness, clicking/popping, numbness and tingling. To properly diagnose, a full assessment of the wrist, hand, elbow, shoulder and spine should be performed as often the location of symptoms is not always the cause of the symptoms.

The hip is a large ball and socket joint and one of our most important weight bearing joints in the body. When something goes wrong with the hip, it affects our ability to walk, stand, sit and more. Hip pain can be localised and deep within the hip joint, or more superficial on the bony surfaces of the hip. It can spread down the leg towards the knee, or up higher in the pelvis or groin with symptoms of pain, numbness, burning and tingling. Some of the most common injuries to occur to the hip are overuse injuries that have direct correlation to the pelvis and lumbar spine, making Chiropractic treatment a superior treatment choice for hip pain and discomfort.

The Doctor helped me in first managing my shoulder pain with some simple treatments. After few sessions I can clearly see the improvement. After about 15 sessions the pain was completely gone. The thing I would have to comment on regarding my care is the quality of care and chiropractic adjustments. I would definitely recommend anyone who is suffering from pain and looking for treatment.
I had been suffering from wrist, hand and thumb pain for a few weeks so I went to visit my Orthopedic doctor and was diagnosed with de quervain's syndrome. He prescribed me painkillers and anti-inflammatories. The problem didn't go away. My daughter asked me to see her Chiropractic Doctor at Kissun Chiropractic as I was unable to take care of my granddaughter during the daytime whilst she was at work. The Doctor was thorough, focused and helped my problem a lot. I am now pain free and didn’t take any medicine for the past month. I would like to thank the Doctor for helping me and giving me the opportunity to spend more time with my granddaughter pain free.
I suffered from recurrent ankle sprains from my basketball and running over the past 5 years. I tried a few physiotherapists but they wanted me to keep coming back after 2 to 3 months of no improvement. I went to Kissun Chiropractic for advice and treatment. They helped me by providing a good 45 minute assessment of my condition and gave me the treatment and help I needed to continue playing basketball and running. After trying many physiotherapists in Singapore I would happily recommend Kissun Chiropractic if you are suffering from ankle problems like I was.
12 weeks into my pregnancy, I broke my foot. I spent the next 4 months on crutches and continued with treatment monthly. The Doctor always took the time to not only adjust my back/neck, but also gave me advice to aid with the healing of my foot. I spent a lot of time sitting with the broken foot and if it weren’t for the Doctor, my pregnancy would have been quite a struggle!
The Doctor helped me by eliminating tightness, pain and aiding recovery from earlier injuries in my foot. The Doctor also spent time to educate me on injury prevention. I experienced rapid relief of pain and discomfort. If you're looking for a Doctor and you are suffering from foot pain, this Doctor is awesome and highly recommended.
