Will using a board under a mattress help with low back pain?

In brief: Possibly

Placing a plywood board under a mattress can help with low back pain, especially if the current mattress is old, too soft or sagging.
If, however, the mattress is firm or relatively new, the board will probably do very little in terms of helping with back pain.
