Evaluation: You need an evaluation by your doctor and likely physical therapy. Avoid sleeping for more than 8 hours to minimize back pain (if doing so) as when you are lying in bed the discs get rehydrated and if your pain is coming from this structure, then it can worsen your pain.

Chronic back pain: Need to start with a good physical exam and likely mri. The right diagnosis can guide the correct treatment. Proper stretching and strengthening is key.
