Pain IS the perfect excuse…

…to call your physical therapist.  I get it.  I’m the one who cleans the apartment BEFORE the housekeeper comes. But waiting to schedule because you’re in too much pain is like telling your dentist, “my teeth are too dirty”, your personal trainer, “I need to lose weight before I start ” or your therapist, “I’m too down in the dumps to see you today.”  I can understand the fear that a PT may make you move, but being in pain is exactly why you should see a PT who will assess your movement and choose a treatment to alleviate your symptoms.
