Can therapy be too agressive?

I just left two weeks of in patient therapy for total knee replacement and just went to first outpatient session.

The difference in amount of time I'm in extreme pain in therapy has gone from 3 minutes to 15 minutes .I am for anything that straightens my leg but don't want to be subjected to extremes which may or may not work.

How do I know valid methods being used?
