What treatment should I take for lower back pain ?

Hi, I am suffering from back pain in the mid back to lower back from the last 15 days. Although this is not regular, the resistance is decreasing. Today while travelling in a taxi for less than 45 minutes my back started paining and it went on for 4-5 hours. Please suggest. I do work on computers a lot and i try to sit straight... but it does not seem to help. Thanks for your reply :)

General & Family Physician Dr. Sapan J. Pandya's  Response
It means that your back muscles are weak. You need to do certain exercises to strengthen them. A qualified physiotherapist may teach you such exercises.
Working on computer for a prolonged period may lead to such a problem.
You need to follow the RULE OF 20 while working on a computer.
After every 20 minutes, see at a distance of 20 feet for 20 seconds and walk for a distance of 20 paces.
