Avoid long sitting.: Get up and stretch frequently may be best option. To relieve the pain in your back make it a habit of lying flat on your back everyday bending your hips and knees and rock on your back would help relieve the spasm of the back muscles. You could check some Yoga poses as well on the Web.
