In brief: Many things

First of all do you know why you have chronic back pain? What diagnostic tests have you had? What treatment have you had? How severe is it? Then i can better answer your question.
In general you could try physical therapy, standard analgesics (unless there is any contraindication) or muscle relaxant. Snri class of antidepressant like Cymbalta (duloxetine) is fda approved for chronic pain. Acupuncture may help.
