Been a while since I made it here-sorry about that; I am Janice and while I don’t have back pain (and my arthritis is limited to my hands) one thing I have seen to be very effective is water aerobics (or physical therapy). It does go by different names. The water gives support so there is less impact. I have a friend who has severe back pain and once she started low dose opioids and was no longer confined to a wheelchair because of the pain, she was able to partake in the water aerobics which did a world of good. Others have had good result with it also. Prescribed by your physician, insurance should pay for it (as it is a form of physical therapy). Good luck and know there is an answer out there-it just takes a while to find what works for you.
