Mild back pain. How long would you rest?

Hello,

For about a week, I've been experiencing mild back pain (lower left side) only present during exercise. I don't think it is a huge deal and it is not debilitating at all. However, it is enough to be a nuisance. I notice it during exercises such as box jumps and double unders. I've rested for 2 days and I still notice it (when I tried a few jumps). I'm starting to feel very guilty for missing the workouts.

How long would you rest?

Ray

Re: Mild back pain. How long would you rest?

Need more information. Depending on what it is and how the injury occurred, I might come down anywhere from "rest until it gets better and see a doctor if it doesn't" to "ignore it completely."

I study aikido, and as in any martial art bumps, bruises, and minor muscle strains pretty much go with the territory. If I stayed home every time I was sore, I'd never get to class. But if I feel like exercise will make it worse, or if I feel like protecting the injury will put me at risk of something worse, I'll stay home.

Katherine

Are you doing any kind of stretching, mobility work?

Are your legs the same length? Mine arent, and it gives me lower back pain when I dont wear my lift in me shoes.
