Is the session painful?
Pain is one of the main, but not the only, outcome measure used in formulating your treatment plan. You can rest assure that any discomfort is monitored throughout the process to help you ease into proper movement patterns and function.
Physiotherapists use a variety of pain relieving techniques that include sports massage, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, ultrasound therapy, cryotherapy, heat therapy, dry needling and many more.
Your physiotherapist will provide information on the desired effects of the modalities and any warnings to take note. After adjusting the appropriate dosage for your individualised treatment plan, the session will begin in a safe and comfortable environment.
Physiotherapists are well trained in managing a spectrum of conditions and diseases with a deep understanding of how the intricate system within our body works. With a commitment to evidence based practice, you can be sure you are getting the best treatment tailored to your specific condition.
If anything, physiotherapy promises to not cause any harm and thrives on continual education to get you back on your feet!
