Will Therapeutic Exercises hurt me more?

If you think it has to hurt to get better, think again. Most Therapeutic Exercises will not cause more pain. That is, the pain a client comes in with is usually something we want to control. The learning curve varies person to person, so we have to test out what is tolerable.

This could result in feeling your symptoms just like when the examination may reveal a pain. It’s all information we can use. More exercising is not always better. Getting the right amount just as important as taking the right dose of medicine to heal the body. We will also use Manual Therapy to prepare for Therapeutic Exercise.

Plus, there are different kinds of pain that a person could experience. Discomfort from exercising a muscle until it’s tired is different from that of tendinitis, for example. We coach you what is ok feel from Therapeutic Exercise and what is not ok to feel.
