When should I stop exercising if I have pain?
“I have back pain with exercise, so I better not do anything. If I try to exercise, the back pain gets worse. I better just stay in bed since it hurts.” We hear these comments all the time. How do you know when to keep going or when to stop exercising when your back hurts. First of all, you should see your doctor when you have back pain. Obviously stop any exercises if you have numbness and tingling down one or both legs. After being discharged from your doctor or physical therapist and released to exercise, use these guidelines when you have pain with exercise:
Obviously, these are just guidelines and those with certain spine conditions may not be able to follow these guidelines. Follow your physician’s advice.

Fantastic. I came in with back pain and what I would have thought was major back instability. I think my results have been more than I could have ever imagined. My back pain is usually a zero now and I am not afraid to get back to the things that I want to do. The staff is great. Every person gives you what you need, they can all answer any questions you may have. Would it be weird to say I am going to miss this place!
great experience! Met some new friends and i got to learn so much from just watching you guys work. i’m a visual learner so yeah. i have helped some other people with knee injuries because i learned so much. maybe thats why i kept asking so many questions RODNEY!!!!
it was good. everyone was very nice and helped me a lot with my ankles. thinks guys, I am feeling great!
I am very pleased with my treatment here. Chris, Chad and Buena were very professional and knowledgeable about my injuries and were able to guide me through a process to help my recovery once I have surgery.
Excellent therapist with great skills and very knowledgeable in the field. I would highly recommend him for therapy to patients of any age. I am now playing golf again without back pain.
Extremely helpful in helping my recovery from my injury. They were able to provide a program that helped me progress as smooth and quick as possible.
Excellent…no problems….they worked with me on scheduling which was very important to me
It was really good, they help me recover faster then I thought. Definite 10/10. * Update: This patient recently set a school record in 400 m in track in 2016
I feel that I have gotten stronger and I have learned what me weak areas are. I also think that I have learned some things that I need to avoid.
Very enjoyable. Instruction was concise and focus on my injury was expertly addressed. Chris let me describe in detail my injury and built a program specific to treating my issue.
