Lower Back Exercises/RICE Method
Long story short, I've been on a chemo drug the past few months for my UC which has left me severely fatigued and I haven't been able to do my regular weights-based exercises or even go out on runs/walks (I have to avoid direct sunlight due to the chemo drug, have basically been a vampire) and now I've been having painful lower back spasms. I have a doctor's appointment in two weeks, but was looking into low impact lower back exercises as well as the RICE method to try and improve in the meantime. Google is giving me conflicting views on the RICE Method (which would mean buying a lower back ice pack, but have read that numbing muscles may be counter-intuitive?) so not sure if I should spend the money on a cold gel wrap. I've also been trying to find some low impact exercises I can do to help strengthen the back muscles, but it's painful even to take deep breaths/stand up/bend over etc. I don't want to injure myself even more, just trying to find something to do before I see my doctor in two weeks. Was wondering if anyone had any suggestions/tips/low impact lower back exercises?
