Myth no. 2 : Physical therapy is painful.
Fact: Physical therapists seek to minimize your pain and discomfort — including chronic or long-term pain. They work within your pain threshold to help you heal and restore movement and function. A survey found that, although 71% of people who have never visited a physical therapist think physical therapy is painful, the number significantly decreases among patients who have seen a physical therapist in the past year.
