Physical therapy is not meant to hurt you, but to relieve your pain. However, it’s imperative to note that as you restore your mobility, there may be times where your pain levels will fluctuate. This is part of the healing and recovery process. You might experience some temporary soreness from using muscles that are weakened or recovering.
This is a normal response to therapy treatment. Let your therapist know if you’re uncomfortable for any reason! Good communication with your therapist will help minimize any discomfort. We want you on your way to quick pain relief and back to normal activities.
