In the "old days" treatment for back problems was a lot of rest, stay in bed. Today I would say it is contrary, do as much activity you can, that does not aggrevate it. Tha answer to the inactivity problems should in part be posture, including sitting, perhaps a look on the mattres you use for sleeping, imo.
Many times I have felt a bit of back pain, that definetely got better after tennis, or running.
But it is frustrating because once you have the pain, it can be hard to disssect what caused or causes it. And once you are well you might be able to tolerate some of the factors that caused it or kept it from going away.
