You might need to see your doctor first. I would say try and stretch first, then work your way to doing something less stressful/strenuous like yoga or pilates. Then whatever your Doctor would recommend. Good luck! They have some good back stretches on here too.

To reduce low back pain the best home treatments are heat, stretches and massage. But to prevent low back pain, the abdominals have to become stronger. Start with planks and side planks, and then progress to dinamic exercises. When you are strong enough only do sit-ups or crunches etc. You need to be strong already before you start those, otherwise your body cheats to do them.

hi, im ron from Philippines. im a licensed PT. you need to consult your physiathrist first or a Rehab doctor to know if what is the underlying cause of it, but basically weak abs can cause low back pain also tightness of hams can contribute.
