My Pain is Intense!?!? Should I Come in for PT?




If I am in acute pain, will PT make me worse?

This is a question I get asked often as a receptionist here at CORE Therapy and Pilates. At CORE, we help people with chronic neck, shoulder, and back pain with great success on a daily basis. We help them be active, fit and free from pain medication even if they have had pain for years.

But, what if your pain is sudden and extreme?

The other day, a person with low back pain called the studio and asked a question I hear frequently, “Should I go ahead and book an appointment now or should I wait until I’m a little bit better?”

That’s a nice way of asking, “Can you actually help me, or am I going to waste my time and leave even more disappointed and in pain than when I came to you?”

I told her, “If you are ready to make a change then let’s book now.”

The thing is, waiting until you feel better to come to PT is like waiting until you’re clean to check into rehab. You’ll never get better without instruction and support, BUT you have to be ready to commit. Otherwise, you’ll come in once or twice and then fall right back off the wagon.

I’ve asked our therapist and they agree – whether your problem is sudden and extreme, or chronic and nagging, we can help you.

For people who want to find out more and see if they are a good fit for our physical therapy program, we offer what is called a Discovery Session.
