In brief: Work with your ob
Your obstetrician knows the severity of the ptl and the specifics of your situation.
You OB may let you use medication for pain. Probably heating pads or cooling pads will be okay. Exercise is great for back pain, but may not be good for your baby. Your OB may allow gentle physical therapy. Any treatment should be approved by your ob.
