Exercise is what will help you to do so but this includes weight control, eliminating habits like smoking, insuring good vitamin d &calcium intake, good sleep on a good mattress regular exercise in terms of flexibility, core muscle strengthening & cardiovascular workouts & avoiding prolonged, static positions like sitting as you will be more active. Sometimes otc meds, a back support &heat help.
