Hello. I believe I have strained a lower left ab muscle. For at least 3 weeks no I am unable to do any crunches or curls of any kind. And also unable to perform the plank position due to a sudden sharp pain. Do these injuries heal on there own or should I consider seeing my physician?? Can I just workout my upper body or stop working out all together?? Thankyou.
