This is actually a very common question I get asked. Most people have heard or read so many different answers they aren’t sure which information is right. Often, they’re afraid to stretch at all because they don’t want to do something wrong or make things worse.
Well, I completely understand why people are confused.
The reason is this…
…the answer to this question really depends on the WHAT, the WHY and WHO is asking the question!
We have a lot of choices when it comes to choosing a health care provider, including a Physical Therapist. When we have so many choices it can be very difficult to decide what to do, let alone feel confident we are making the best decision. Unfortunately, this leads to a lot of people who simply don’t make a decision and continue to suffer with pain for weeks, months and even years. Not only are these people suffering with pain, they struggle to do the activities they need or want to do.
I hear so many stories from patients that “just thought it would get better”. Sometimes it does, but for many the pain continues to be a constant annoyance, or it comes and goes without warning.
Please don't let this be you! Don't suffer any longer!
