Physiotherapy, chiropractic, and massage therapy are not meant to hurt you, but to relieve your pain and restore your function. However, it’s imperative to note that as you restore your mobility and strength, there may be times where your pain levels will fluctuate. This is part of the healing and recovery process, and your therapist will teach you how to use these fluctuations as a guide to progress, maintain, or regress your exercise prescription.
So some pain is a normal response to therapy treatment. But always let your therapist know if you’re uncomfortable for any reason! Good communication with your therapist will help minimize any hiccups in your plan of care. We want you on your way to quick pain relief and back to normal activities.
