Orthopedic Surgery - Spine
In brief: Flexibility-Core
You want to do a complete and diverse program beginning with flexibility and postural ones to avoid becoming "fused" in a bent over position leading to increased muscular pain in that case.
Cardiovascular and core strengthening will help in general while producing your own pain relievers called endorphins.
