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.
Professional staff who are concerned about their patients. Also best program ever.
Great experience. Always felt motivated to work my hardest and knew that the therapists were truly caring about my recovery.
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! 🙂
Great place for rehab. I will let everyone know who needs rehab to come out and see there great facility. Thanks a lot for all your help!!!!!!
I feel 100% better than when I arrived. Great Staff , Good program , Thanks for getting me back on track.
Excellent, Chris predicted 3 months of work and it was just at 3 months. I have great range of motion now in my shoulder. Chris and Rodney pushed me and the work paid off. Lindsi is always cheerful, helpful and sweet. x
i have improveed a lot. All the exercises ans therapy did a lot of good. Every one here were so helpful and explained everything very well. Rate it 10/10.
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!!!!
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.
