hurt my lower back squatting a week and a half ago. I stopped doing lifting like squats and deadlifts, but the pain is still here. I have been running and playing basketball though.Should I also stop playing basketball for a while? And when should I be able to get back to my usual lifting? And any pointers to make sure I don't get hurt again because football season is right around the corner.

how did you hurt it,
is it just sore as a muscle type soreness or out of places type sore?

if you can still play bball then it is probably not that bad. Still, the back can get really cranky and take it's time recovering. Patience.
