post surgery physical therapy

Is the pain my physical therapist put me thru on my 2nd visit after shoulder surgery supposed to be this UNbelievably painful? As she was pulling on my shoulder, I heard a tendon pop. The pain was more than I could handle, thought I was gonna throw up. Is this normal and to be expected every time? Pain medicine was taken before the visit and help at all. I had quite a lot done during the surgery. Rotator cuff repair, bursa,bicep, bone spurs,collar bone trimmed. I have a high pain tolerance, but this is unbelievable. She said the pop was scar tissue breaking apart. I am now 23 days post-op.
