In brief: Back pain

Often improves from changes in lifestyle, including dosed exercising and flexibility stretches as well as walking.
A sedentary lifestyle usually leads to worsening back pain, while core strenthening and healthy eating-and-drinking habbits are good for your back too! try joining a gym and find pilates- or yoga classes to go to; even 2x1hr a week will do wonders! see "stretching" answer from earlier.
