Default Best Cardio Machine for Lower Back Strengthening?

Have had chronic back pain for many years till it has deteriorated to Spinal
Canal Stenosis. Saw this machine on Australia's "Beyond Tomorrow" and
decided to give it a try. Best move I ever made. Abdominal core, back, leg
and arm muscles have strengthened to a point I am more of a stock-whip than
a slack piece of string. Recent EEG shows no cause for concern. Lung
capacity and endurance has increased. Physical and mental well-being have
Best of all is that there has been no deterioration in the lower back..No
"slipped" disc. No pain or additional numbness/burning in 6 months. Touch
AND........IT"S FUN

BTW.Am 60 y/o

I'm looking at buying an Elliptical, Treadmill, Bike, Recumbent, or
Climber for Cardio. I'm id decent shape, less than 20 pounds over

I have chronic pain around a fused vertebrae in lower back, so want my
choice to also be the one that gives the most benefit as far as lower
back strengthening. (A rower would be too direct/painful.)

Is there a clear choice which of the above makes the right machine? I'm
thinking Elliptical.
