In brief: Depends

I would advise seeing a licensed physical therapist so an evaluation can be performed to see what are the contributing factors that are causing your back pain.
Appropriate stretches and core strengthening exercises that are relevant to your condition can then be prescribed. Also appropriate manual techniques can be performed by the therapist to correct joint and muscle imbalances.

Magical? No. Within the realm of reality? Try Pilates/PiYo/Yoga. Also, the above works great! ;-)
