Regarding your back pain you need to consult a doctor, and the doctor will examine you and do the necessary investigations (such as imaging studies) to find out the cause for your back pain. Therefore the treatment of the back pain would be based on the causative factors for the pain. You may be then advised physiotherapy or medications (to be used for a short term) for the relief of pain. An exercise regimen may also be advised and taught to you.
