Will the therapy hurt?
Physical Therapy should not hurt for the majority of diagnoses but there may be a small amount of muscle soreness 1-2 days following an initial evaluation and the start of an exercise program. We encourage consistent performance of the individual home exercise program and the use of ice for 10-15 minutes post exercise. The patient should stop any activity that creates significant pain immediately and contact their clinician immediately to figure out the best next steps.
