Currently I do small exercises like bending at backside and sleeping on mattress placed on a flat surface but still not founding any improvement.

Thanks for posing the query.

Low backache is very common and often self limiting. Normally small remedial measures like proper rest, local heat, anti inflammatory drugs are enough to make it all right.

If the problem doesn't resolve then you have to consult the doctor for proper history of your symptoms, proper physical examination and necessary investigations.

The causes for pain at your age could be prolapsed disc, trauma, fractures, ankylosing spondylitis, spodylolisthesis (forward shift of one vertebra over another).

Necessary investigations could be CBC (Complete Blood count), CRP (C - reactive protein), HLA-B27, X-ray lumbosacral spine and possibly MRI (Magnetic Resonant Imaging) of the lower spine, if required.

Since treating somebody online is not possible, I have tried to enlighten you.
