Lower abdominal strain, mild pain on getting up, sprinting. Can I play sports?

Hi... I had a lower abdominal strain for almost two weeks now. The pain isnt great but when i sprint it hurts a little bit and when i get up from sitting it sometimes hurts. It has gotten alot better within the past week. Im a big soccer player and i need to get back on the field. If im feeling the strain only a tiny bit is it ok for me to go on the field and perform?

I think its ok for you to go back to the field. You can use hot fomentation and diclofenac sprays to control the pain.
This will resolve on its own in a couple of days.

Hope this helps.
