I have been told after my recent BMD that the density of L4, L5 and S1 is extremely low. I am afraid that I do not understand the medical jargon but somwhere in the result it says that this part of the spine is 2.6. I get constant pain in my hip, lower back and leg which increases on exertion.
I have to take care of my husband who has COPD so do not have the time or the facilities nearby to attend a gym. Currently I am taking Calcium tablets every day and doing no other exercise except the housework and daily care of an invalid. We are both 68 years old.
Could you please suggest something to strengthen my lower back so that I can continue doing what I have to do without the pain ?? If there are exercises could you please show me illustrations or sketches I am really clueless on following written instructions.
We live at 7000 ft in a beautiful but cold and misty hill station in South India. Sea level is best for both of us but this is our home and we cannot move.
Thank you in advance for any advise.
