Physical Therapy does not equal ‘No pain No gain’

Pain & Torture?
.
Somewhere along the line, PT got the nickname “pain and torture.”
.
And sure, sometimes physical therapy hurts, and sometimes it feels like torture.
.
But if your rehab experience feels like pain and torture, you may be going to someone who subscribes to the “NO PAIN NO GAIN” mentality.
.
I have been guilty of imparting some discomfort (sharpest elbows in NJ 💪) and there are totally times you have to push a bit.
.
But really, the only kind of discomfort you should endure is the growing pains of working through weaknesses.
.
Or maybe the process of working your way back after an injury feels like torture.
.
No pain no gain may actually limit your progress, slow down the recovery, and at the very least just doesn’t feel good.
.
Suffering through rehab isn’t the only way…
