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 very pleased with the results of the rehab. All aspects exceeded my expectations although I had high doubts this would alleviate my pain.
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!!!!!!
“Thank you Chris and the AthletePlus team for all your help in getting my knee back to “normal”. I can use it again with ease and no pain”
Very professional and kind people who answered each question I had throughout the Low Back Program
Very professional, kind people who answered each question I had throughout the program. The program was challenging, yet possible for someone with my injuries to complete. The E-Stim sessions seemed to help, also. I completed the exercises I was directed to do at home each day to strengthen my back.
I started my physical therapy in a significant amount of pain. After a couple weeks I stopped taking pain medicine because I was experiencing so much relief from pain. The staff was so helpful and knowledgeable. Every visit was a positive experience.
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!!!!
i connected with the staff. i had fun and I am glad i dont have to get surgery.
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.
