Does Physiotherapy Hurt?
- Physiotherapy is not meant to hurt! There is a chance, however, as you restore your mobility that your pain levels will fluctuate. Good communication with your therapist will help provide you with parameters around what type or kind of pain is “good”. Like you, we also want you on your way to full pain relief and back to normal activities as soon as possible, and we realize that sometimes this journey can be bumpy.
- You might experience some temporary soreness from using muscles that are weakened or recovering. Rest assured that this is a normal response to physiotherapy treatment and not a cause for concern.
