It’s possible to feel a little sore during an assessment because a physiotherapist will need to understand the limits of your movement and strength. That being said, physiotherapy treatments itself should not hurt.
The main purpose is not only to get rid of your pain but also to get you moving and functioning optimally without pain. This will mean that you’ll need to put in some effort to practice moving better and getting stronger, which may push you out of your comfort zone at times.
If you have any questions on how to manage your pain better, talk to physiotherapists at PhysioRehab Group
