23 years?: That is a very long time to suffer from back pain. Unfortunately, there is probably no single good answer. You will most likely deal with some level of pain forever but there are things to try to be more functional. If you are overweight, do everything possible to lose weight. Try chiropractic, accupuncture and yoga / pilates. Go slow, don't quit!
