Requires Hx/exam: This is not something you can sort out with a few questions. A full review of your history, onset, pattern, relieving factors etc. is needed. An exam and possibly some testing are also needed to begin sorting this out.

Exercise: Regular exercise, any exercise, will help by toning your muscles. You may start with walking and gradually increase the time and intensity of exercise so that you are sweating profusely. Raising core body temperature through exercise will make your muscles strong and nimble and limit the backache.
