No, Exercise: Regular exercise would improve your muscles and alleviate the back pain. For the short term you may take a pain medication like acetaminophen. Any exercise will do, walking, jogging, swimming, treadmill, elliptical etc.
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Depends . . .: I can't answer your question w/o knowing what caused the deformity in your left hand. You need to go see your doctor for a diagnosis. I suspect that you have not even done so or else you would have received some treatment options to consider in which case you would be asking which is best to prevent same thing from happening to your right hand. So please go see your doctor & find out what you have. ...Read more

Chest wall vs other: The pain you describe sounds more like a chest wall pain in the rib joints. Did you get hit or cause pressure to the wall for a period of time. If it persists should see a provider to make sure nothing bad. If you get short of breath or nauseated with the pain then also should check with Dr. or be seen. Warm moist heat and Ibuprofen will sometimes help but check it out if not better. Hope helps. ...Read more

I get bad pains in my lower ribs on my left hand side . What might be the cause of this ?

LUQ is complicated: The left upper quadrant of your abdomen includes spleen, stomach, diaphragm, and a bend of your colon called the splenic flexure. In addition, the heart and lower lung are nearby, plus the muscles and connecting tendons of the left ribs may originate discomfort. Its better to seek medical attention and get examined than to guess wrong which organ system is at fault and delay proper diagnosis. ...Read more
