In brief: Stretch, exercise

Back soreness is very common and most often caused by strain on the back muscles.
It is a good idea to stretch your back and do back exercises. If there is persistent numbness or pain that does not go away in a few days then it is best to see your doctor to rule out more serious causes of back pain, like disc disease and nerve compression.
