In brief: Multifactorial

Chronic low back pain requires a multifactorial approach.
Eliminating stress, incorporating yoga or swimming into your exercise regime, having an osteopathic or chiropractic adjustment, exploring acupuncture are just a few things i would recommend. Of course you should be informed by a specialist as to your diagnosis, usually through having an MRI to eliminate any extreme dangerous condition.

In brief: Acute pain?

If you have acute pain, then taking over the counter pain meds and relative rest (avoiding activities that worsens the pain) is enough the majority of times.
If your pain has been there for more than a couple of weeks, then visit your doctor for an evaluation.
