Back Pain: Very common condition due to improper position and chronic strain. Will not go away immediately and slowly start stretching the back with yoga exercises- gentle stretch, avoid soft chair and bed, keep a good posture at all times, ice and get gentle massage when in pain. Firm beds are helpful to wake up pain free in the morning. Swimming is best exercise for back pain.
