I had PT yesterday with a different therapist. She was a pusher. I told her how I felt about it, but she was pleasantly persistent. She kept telling me to try a little harder and hold it a little longer. When she measured my ROM, she said I should go as far as I could, then she would push a little. I questioned how valid that number would be if she was pushing. She said to tell her when to stop. She pushed gently, but then held it and told me to breathe through the discomfort. Shame on me for allowing this! I was very uncomfortable last night and my knees seem more swollen today. I see the nice therapist tomorrow and am going to ask if I can see her from now on. I'm scheduled with the pushy therapist for the following 3 visits. If I can't change therapists, I'm going to cancel PT after tomorrow. My DH thinks I'm exaggerating, but they aren't his knees.
