Does it Hurt?
Most treatment does not really hurt. If you are in pain then you will probably feel some pain but it won’t be any worse than the pain you are currently feeling. Muscle pain can be unpleasant and the treatment to it is not always pleasurable but your practitioner will be listening and watching you to make sure you are not too distressed.
After the treatment there can be some changes to your pain. This is because things are changing and your body has to react. Stiffness and ache are often experienced and whilst they may not be very pleasant they are the normal effects of treatment. They will soon settle down – don’t feel you have got worse and you do not want to come back. After each treatment you will feel better and better and the initial reaction should not reoccur.
