Frequently Asked Questions
Does physical therapy hurt?
For virtually all patients, no. “No pain, no gain” is not true for most. You might develop sore muscles from using muscles that you haven’t used, or that are weak. Similarly, stretching a joint to improve range of motion can be uncomfortable.
Who chooses which physical therapist I go to?
The choice is yours. Your physician will likely give you a recommendation or a listing of physical therapists in the area. Your insurance company may also guide you as to which physical therapists are “in network” for your insurance plan. However, the choice of where you receive physical therapy is ultimately up to you. If you have a specific request, you will need to let your physician know. For a list of the insurance companies we accept, click here.
