Is Physiotherapy Painful?

Is Physiotherapy Painful?

Physiotherapy in Parramatta: Is Physiotherapy painful? Quick answer to your question – rarely. Some people associate Physiotherapy with pain. And may choose not to use Physiotherapy as a natural way of alleviating pain. Physiotherapy aims to reduce pain by using various tools and techniques. Sometimes patients come in with a lot of pain – in such cases reduction in symptoms can take a while. In other cases, when areas of the body which have stiff for a while are mobilised, can cause short term soreness.

There may be minimal discomfort when the treatment starts and your Physiotherapist will work closely with you to make it a comfortable experience. Once treatment begins, you will find that pain will reduce and your body will become more flexible. Physiotherapists may also use modalities such as heat or cold packs, ultrasound, electrical stimulation and massage in order to make your exercise more tolerable and pain-free. In the case of arthritis, therapists may employ hydrotherapy which makes the exercises more comfortable.
