Do not allow fear of pain to delay or prevent you from becoming active while your back still hurts. As long as you are using gentle activity guided by common sense, you should try to be active soon after the low back pain starts. Total immobility is not usually necessary and is only useful for a short time.
The goal is to gradually and gradually increase your activity level based on what you find tolerable and safe to do. Staying inactive too long will lead to loss of overall flexibility, strength, and endurance in the low back, which will create the opportunity for more pain.
