I had strep throat and was in bed for almost a week. From non movement I developed severe lower back pain. I could hardly get out of bed this morning. I could hardly walk. I'm now walking slowly but I'm wondering what type of exercises to do? I've been alternating cold and heat on my lower back and taking 2 Tylenol every 5 hours to relax my back. I can't seem to lift my right leg above a foot. So it would have to be exercises with minimal lifting on my rt. side.
