I'm a healthy 26-y-o female with near-constant back pain -- sometimes upper, sometimes lower. Massage helps temporarily. What are some solutions?

In brief: See an osteopath

If you have near constant back pain that moves, or is upper one day, lower the other, have an osteopathic physician do a complete osteopathic examination, and treatment to bring longer lasting results by neutralizing your spine (decompressing areas of tightness).
Massage helps temporarily, but osteopathic treatment (omt) addresses the cause, and treats it for faster, longer pain relief.
