Misconceptions About Physical Therapy

  • Stimulants e.g. nicotine and caffeine as they aggravate pain
  • Heavy lifting or pushing (supermarket trolleys can be particularly painful)
  • Pushing through any pain. If something hurts, if possible don't do it. If this type of pain is allowed to flare up, it can take a long time to settle back down again.
  • Clinics that have you return for several visits without seeing improvement
