  • people will probably tell you to take tylenol and then a heating pad.

  • try some of the pelvic excerises. thats what my doc recommended for me. like the one where you roll your hips in a circle a few times. or he said to get on all fours and raise up my back and then let it hang down. it helps to loosen up all the muscles and relax them a little. or i had to use like a heating pad and tylenol. there not a whole lot more than that. at least thats all i know of. hope this helped

  • I don't know if they are offered where you live or not, or if your able to with previously having a broken back....but the clinic where I love offers pregnancy massages. They come in a series, that may help but the hot pad should help too. Good Luck! Hang in there!
