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.

Overall a very positive experience. The staff has been very professional and have provided me with not just therapy, but a method to continue my work outside the center. All the exercises provided have been such that they can be integrated into my normal workout routine. This should allow me to work on any problems on my own in the future. I have been very pleased with the progress I made and with the program.
My experience was very good and my physiotherapist was very informative. I am happy to come back here again after my knee surgery.
My experience at AthletePlus, was the best. They helped me be more flexible and a strengthening my hip.
My experience was great! They are all very nice and very helpful, the workers here do a great job, and also make you feel very comfortable by building a relationship with their patients. They also strive to get you at the level you need to be at, and will give it their all to get you there. I would recommend everyone I know to go to Athlete Plus!
I felt that the people and atmosphere were very supportive and helpful. I appreciated the patience and humor of the therapists. I would recommend Athlete Plus looking to get healthy.
Excellent. I’ve been to three other physical therapy facilities over the years, this is by far the best in terms of the specialized equipment and level of custom and personal care. The results I’ve had have far surpassed what I achieved at the other physical therapy facilities. I would highly recommend to anyone! All of you have been wonderful, and I am grateful for the improvement I’ve shown! Office experience has improved dramatically since Alicia joined AtheletePlus. Give everyone bonuses! 🙂
Very good experience with AthletePlus Everyone was great and would rate 10/10
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.
Great experience. Always felt motivated to work my hardest and knew that the therapists were truly caring about my recovery.
