My profession has significant sedentary time intervals. A lot of sitting, a lot of paper work.

I've had lifelong chronic back pain and I'm always experimenting with things to try to make it either more bearable or disappear.
Do an internet search for 'TENS unit' and back pain. It's a pretty cheap device (I paid $50, but I'm pretty sure there are ones a little cheaper) and you can use it as little or as much as you need. It basicallly sends little electrical impulses to your nerves, which blocks them from receiving pain signals. I just got mine 2 days ago and I'm still playing around with it, but many people with chronic pain swear by it. You can easily conceal it under clothing and it's battery operated.
There's a saying. "First move well. Then move often." Skipping the first line of that quote is how lots of people compound their problems.
I herniated a disc at the age of 15...bout twenty years ago. Chiropractic saved me from surgery. I still get an alignment about 1x/month just as a tune up.
