    I find hanging/pulldowns very therapeutic for back. I also think that standing calf raises, with the weight on your shoulders, is very damaging.

    Don't take a week off, you need the blood flow it will make it feel much better. Just avoid exercises that cause compression overhead presses, squats, and also anything bent over. Look into the Mckenzy stretches, ice the area that hurts if it doesnt get better or it gets worse in the next 1-2 weeks seek a doctors advice.
