    Lower Back injury - any good and safe excercises out there?

    I had a fairly severe lumbar spine injury when I was 14. I was very physically active and played lots of sports and was a very good swimmer. After the injury I was able to keep up with the swimming and walking but no running and finally had to have surgery in the 1980s. Now that I've hit the golden years of retirement and have more time to devote to fitness, I need to find exercises that won't aggravate the chronic pain from that long-ago injury. Walking would be great but it is one of the things that increases pain. I do swim.

    Anybody have some ideas for me?
