I had massive back surgery year and half ago. I have two rods, 8 screws, and two cages in my back. I bought a stationary bike and use it at home along with light weights. But everyone is different. I would consult with your doctor first.

That would definitely be something you want to consult with your doctor about before trying any exercises.

Do you know what is causing the pain? It's hard to know what exercises to suggest without knowing the details of the problem. I wouldn't want to suggest something that could end up causing further problems. I would recommend talking to your doctor about what's going on, so that hopefully they can help figure out the cause of the problem and then give you exercises that will help alleviate the pain.

Any stretching is ideal but the best is one where you extend one leg and lean over. Another is getting on all fours and extend one leg and the opposite arm and hold to a count of 5 sec. Reciprocate and do the opposite arm and leg. Do 15 of these. Get on your belly and raise your torso to stretch your back. Stretching the hamstrings will also help.

I have a bad back it doesn't always hurt. I was wondering what are some exercises i could do on days my back is hurting. I live forty miles from the nearest city and am looking for stuff i can do at home because I have a 2 year old running around. I have been looking online at some routines but i know the ones i have found will be hard on my back. So if anyone has any suggestions please let me know.
