Brief Answer:
Need to modify risk factors.

Detailed Answer:
I understand the concern. Most common reason for back pain is paraspinal muscle spasm. Most of the time it depends upon our activities and other risk factors. Are you involve in prolong sitting jobs? Long hours of travel? Usually cause back muscle fatigue and results into persistent back pain.
Lets coming to the treatment options. It think you need to modify your risk factors. Regular back muscle stretching and some exercises are important to cure this problem. Also daily 30-40 minutes swimming is also good option.
Black disc on indicates degeneration and its not a disease. People can live with it without any symptoms. You need not be worried about that finding.
If you wish you can upload your MRI images and X-ray.

Thanks.
