Mid-body pain: It could be a lot of things such as a muscle strain or coming from an internal organ such as the intestines, kidney or pelvic organs. Talking with a nurse or practitioner would help begin to sort this out.

Swimming : There are many stretches to do on land, but if you have access to a pool or lake, doing whatever swimming strokes you are most comfortable with, is an excellent way to loosen up your back. Just think about stretching your whole body to its full length as you put your arms in the water with each stroke. Don't worry about how far or fast you swim. Even 15 minutes 3+ times a week will help a lot.
