Does Physiotherapy hurt?
Many people avoid Physiotherapy because they are scared of the pain that it might cause. For the duration of the Physiotherapy you can rest, as for the most part, you shouldn’t experience any pain. The majority of people who have experienced Physiotherapy have said that the treatment does not hurt, however some may say that the treatment causes some initial discomfort. This all depends on the type of Physiotherapy that you experience and the problem that you have. As you progress in care, you will find that the discomfort eases away. Even if you do experience any kind of pain, the long term benefits will make it worth it. Physiotherapy can help alleviate chronic or acute pain after as many as three sessions. We advise you to not be put off by the risk of pain. If you have any more queries similar to this then call us on 01344625475.
