Welcome to SP! I would suggest talking to your doctor about what exercises he recommends if you're having those issues. Of course, doing some of the yoga moves that involve stretching your back might help if it's a nerve or muscle issue. And whatever activities you do try, just pay attention to how you feel. If it feels like it is making your injury worse, stop doing it until you're better.
Best of luck to you! I know my Wii Fit has been a big part of keeping me active, especially during the winter months.
"Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities crept in - forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it well and serenely, and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old mistakes and nonsense." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

I just joined Sparks and also recently brought the Wii Fit. I am a work at home Mom with 2 kids - 6 & 19 - long story, same husband. Anyway, I starting playing baseball and bowling with my younger son and now have left leg pain. After many drs. it is either pinched nerve, muscle, or restless leg syndrome. I am not sure if I should use the Wii or not and if yes how to set up a fitness program. It seems abit overwhelming! I am glad to join this team. It definitely shows that the Wii can help in weight loss. Hope I can figure this all out soon. Have a great day!
