In brief: Many
Get up often and do extension and flexion exercises of the back.
Get a good lumbar support to go behind your back in the chair. Watch your posture and sit up straight. Get a good chair with good support and at the proper height. Consider using a heating pad or an ice pack. Ibuprofen & similar otc's may help if no allergies or contraindications. Stretch, stretch and do more stretching.
