Is Physical Therapy Painful?
In some cases, physical therapy techniques can be painful. For example, recovering knee range of motion after total knee replacement or shoulder range of motion after shoulder surgery may be painful. Your physical therapist will utilize a variety of techniques to help maximize your progress toward your treatment goals while minimizing your pain.
It is crucial that you communicate the intensity, frequency, and duration of pain to your therapist. Without this information, it is difficult for the therapist to adjust your treatment plan. At Omni, we focus on symptomatic treatment to provide you with the best possible experience and improve your quality of life.
