In brief: Pull fewer weeds

If pulling weeds causes you back pain, stop before it becomes severe.
Other ideas-wear a back brace, take a Motrin before starting, strengthen your back muscles by lifting weights.

In brief: Posture

Change your technique.
Obviously your back & you are engaging in a conversation.And you're not getting the message. See a physical therapist or your physician for advice--or, if that's the only activity that bothers you, get a gardener.
