I've been going to PT for about 4 mos. He recently told me I had spasms in my thigh muscles. he tried rubbing thme out, I thought I was in hell it hurt so bad. When I went back he used electro stem on it and put on tape. I'm afraid of the manual rubbing it almost killed me so painful. has anyone else heard of this? I want to get back ROM it's only about 82-85. My sue=rgery was 5 mos ago and I had complications with bloodclots so got off to a slow start. I can take pain but this it's terrible. Any suggestions?

THIS CAN BE NORMAL ESPECIALLY IF YOUR MUSCLES ARE SPASMING. THIS IS ALL CONSISTENT OF A SLOW START. KEEP AT IT AND IF YOU GET WORRIED SEE YOUR SURGEON.
