I've had a long term relationship with lower back pain. Stretching and cycling are both helpful, although the latter without the former is asking for trouble.

But as to heat, we purchased a hot tub 14 years ago, and for a while I was using it 2 and 3 times a day. Simply wonderful. And then there's my friend the ice pack. They've both become like a part of the family, I'd really miss having to live without them.
