Mild Aches And Long Term Prevention
Pain is the body’s way of telling us that something is not right. It can be experienced as a result of many different types of injuries.
Some common causes of pain include tissue inflammation, nerve irritation, wear and tear of the joints, and traumatic injuries. When the pain is not severe, many people tend to ignore pain or brush it off as “normal office or age related aches and pain”.
It is important when experiencing pain, to consult a doctor to exclude any serious underlying condition and to discuss effective and appropriate treatment options. This is because if left untreated, the underlying cause of pain can get progressively worse, to a point of requiring complicated treatments, or give rise to sudden flares of intense pain.
For most cases of mild aches, topical gels, physiotherapy exercises, and trigger point massages can offer good results. For cases requiring long term prevention, a combination of regenerative medical supplements and dietary correction can also be very helpful. If you have been living with joint aches and pain, we are able to help.

What To Expect When I Visit The Pain Relief Clinic
A typical visit will involve our doctor first understanding your medical history, concerns and previous experience with other pain treatments.
For patients who have consulted many people but have yet to receive a clear diagnosis, selecting an affordable imaging scan might be recommended to confirm the cause of your pain..
Some patients have already done scans with other doctors for their pain condition but are still not clearly told what they suffer from.
Dr Terence Tan is happy to offer you a second opinion and recommend how best to manage your condition.
We also see patients who already have a confirmed diagnosis from specialist pain doctors, but are "stuck” because treatment options offered are not practical or acceptable.
We can help by discussing options that you might have potentially never been told of.
A common experience is when a patient has already consulted a specialist doctor for pain management and is told to consider orthopaedic surgery which they find too aggressive.
Or they may have seen doctors for their pain and were prescribed painkillers with potential side effects which made them feel uncomfortable.
Many of our patients have also first tried complementary treatments or acupuncture with traditional Chinese pain doctors.
They look for a second opinion after finding any relief experienced from other treatments to be temporary or requiring repetitive treatments, which add up to time and cost.
Especially in such situations, we emphasize using non-invasive medical technology you likely have not been told about .
This can make a big difference to your results.
