Hi! Yes it is not unusual to have back pain, incase of which mild exercises, stretching, hot or cold compresses will help to strengthen and relieve the pain. But if it is severe you need to consult your doctor.

Weekly yoga or stretching classes can be effective at improving function and reducing chronic back pain. The effects can last for several months or longer. In a recent study, yoga and stretching classes were shown to be superior to self-care books in reducing chronic back pain and improving function.
