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!
I was really pleased with the service at AthletePlus. The staff is professional and helpful. I felt comfortable asking any questions about the therapy and anything related to my injury. I felt at ease getting advice on how to adapt the routines so I could do them at home. Overall, I would recommend them to anyone.
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.
My experience here was amazing! I had great service and a speedy recovery thanks to AthletePlus!
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
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.
Overall very pleased with the results of the rehab. All aspects exceeded my expectations although I had high doubts this would alleviate my pain.
Exceptional will be my word. First thing that comes in my mind.
Excellent…no problems….they worked with me on scheduling which was very important to me
I feel 100% better than when I arrived. Great Staff , Good program , Thanks for getting me back on track.
