In brief: Stretches

You should see a doctor to make sure there are no underlying injuries, but you can go to our website familyhealth.
Pro, go to links tab, look for videos, and there are some good stretches that may help. Swimming is great if you have access to a heated pool.

In brief: Back issues

Try swimming or aquatic exercises at you local YMCA.
The water will help you isolate muscle groups to avoid excessive strain. In general concentrate on maintaining full range of motion versus trying to get cardio benefits or muscle weight gain.
