A physiotherapist had me lie down, pillow under my head and one knee bent, while she placed hot packs under my lower back. If I wanted to change the position of my legs I was to bend the other first, that I was not to have both legs flat even briefly. It took about an hour but what a difference. I've since done this with a heating pad with good results.

I lay on the floor on my back, butt against the wall and put my legs up on the wall. It feels so good, stretches my lower back completely.

Stretching and heat helped me. If you can get a shower that has the multiple spray settings, set it on the pulse massage. Or if you don't have one - buy one! You can get a nice one for under $20.

If you experience back pain in the future, I have found yoga to help with that kind of thing. But for the moment icy hot patches... :)

I actually like to keep my back and core in shape, I guess you could say, nothing major but flexing those muscles, lots of stretching, I even will go to the gym and work with weights some. When those muscles are stronger I seem to feel better and not that sore after a long ride..

I started seeing a chiropractor, and if you don't see one already, they can give you good advice based on your situation. My chiropractor used to ride, I was so surprised when he knew what posting was...
