    A good physical therapist, will insure your safety, you should take these concerns up with them. Typically they don't want you to do a lot physically for three days then you can resume normal activity levels. You need time for the injection site to heal so you don't end with a spinal headache. Also it is going to depend on your overall physical abilities prior to the injection. But this is something you should discuss with your physical therapist. Many will find with the relief they get they can actually do more. While you might be sore the first few days, you actually might feel like doing more if the desired relief is achieved. Good luck.
