In brief: A lot!

Lifestyle changes are important like not smoking, weight control and regular exercise.
You can use medication if no contraindications like ibuprophen or naproxen, try a back support, guided exercise & activity modification. If no better, then see your doctor for further evaluation and treatment. Most back pains do get better on their own as well.
