In brief: Exercise

Warm up for 5-15 minutes before activity.
Stretch before and after exercise to stay flexible. Do core strengthening exercises, strengthen your hip and pelvic muscles, consider a formal physical therapy program if home exercises aren't cutting it. Try ice, heat, massage, acupuncture. Consider injections if severe.

In brief: No right answer

There are many potential causes for back pain both mild and severe.
The best thing to do particularly if your back pain is severe is to see your doctor. Then he/she can help you determine the proper way to have this evaluated.
