Exercises for back: Both the neck and the back needs gently daily stretching, sometimes some anti inflammatories and healthy core muscle without being overweight to protect it. Maybe an occasional massage helps to loosen things up, and work on a trengthening program to allow your core muscles to take the beating, and that way your spine doesn't have to. Sedentary work/life is not good either.... Motion=lotion!
