Back pain: You should see your family physician who can try to find out the reason for your back pain, then suggest the appropriate therapy. That might having x-rays if needed, or seeing a physical therapist. In the meantime, Tylenol, heat, and stretching may help.

Lifestyle adjustment: Assuming this is typical back ache, not associated with more serious issues like a urinary tract infection, treatment generaly includes an exercise regimen, a good night's sleep, weight control and simple things like heat applications as well as avoiding prolonged sedentary positions. One can use some over the counter medications if no medical reasons that would prevent there use such as tylenol (acetaminophen).
