In brief: Many good choices

Back pain is a common problem that benefits from multiple approaches including physical therapy/massage/manipulative therapies, exercise & relaxation techniques.
Herbal anti-inflammatories like curcumin & boswellia, muscle-relaxing herbs like valerian & skullcap, & herbs that help stress like ashwagandha & holy basil can help. Magnesium (esp. Mag. Taurate) often helps. Zyflamend is a good product.

In brief: See below

The herbal medicines devil's claw, white willow bark, and cayenne might reduce back pain, according to a new research review.
But the review's authors aren't recommending those herbal remedies. Instead, they say more work is needed to sort out the risks and benefits of the herbal treatments.
