But is it okay to exercise with an injury?

Under usual circumstances, it is advised that a person refrains from exercising for a few days. Even if you do begin exercising, it is advised that you take it slow. If you quickly begin exercising like you were before you got the injury, you may exert all your energy. This may make you weaker and prone to another injury. In case you feel while exercising, you should stop exercising at that very moment.

Pain while exercising is the signal that your body gives to tell you that you have gone too far or have overdone exercising. Rest and recovery are important aspects of exercising. Give time to your body to recover so that you can safely return to exercising.
