  • Stretching and strengthening of the back will do wonders. Do any kind of "core" training that will both strengthen the back and abs. Also yoga and pilates may help as well. Definitely go see a Doctor first to make sure your back pain won't be exacerbated by doing those exercises.

  • Drugs. My lower back pain is sometimes unbearable. Apparently I have muscle spasms and minor scoliosis. Heat helps a bit sometimes as well as extremely firm massage to the area. My doc is trying me on different pain killers but it's hard to find one strong enough that doesn't make me drowsy.
