In brief: Refer to answer
Need to stablish the cause.
In general a back brace, and exercise is a good start. If pain persists refer to your physician.

In brief: Don't stand too long
You can try to change your foot position by resting one and alternating them on a book or footstool simulating a brass rail in a bar. Just walking a few steps periodically or squating can help.
Some pelvic tilts can help as well as a simple elastic back support. Weight control, regular exercise and not smoking ( if you do) will also help. Sometimes a local heat application can help -otc patches.
