Following is a possible prayer to pray for yourself or for someone you know that has back pain.
I pray for all the back muscles to relax, any pinched nerves to be released, the bones to be aligned, the discs, tendons, cartilage, and ligaments to all be healed, and all pain to go in Jesus' name. Amen

Following are some other ideas that may help with back pain.
1. Drink more water
Except from email from Jeff Reagan’s Daily Health Newsletter:
So, I’m going to refer back to the water “guru” Dr. Batmanghelidj for help on the subject...He says: “The spinal joints - intervertebral joints and their disc structures - are dependent on different hydraulic properties of water stored in the disc core and in the end plate cartilage covering the flat surfaces of the spinal vertebrae.Water isn’t just a lubricant for the contact surfaces, it is held in the disc core to support the compression weight of the upper body. Fully 75 percent of the weight of the upper body is supported by the water volume stored in the disc core. 25 percent is supported by the fibrous materials around the disc.The principle in the design of all joints is for water to act as a lubricating agent, as well as bear the force produced by weight or tension produced by muscle action.” That’s a mouthful, I know…Simply put:
Water supports your spine.
If you don’t drink enough of it, your back will likely hurt. If you drink more of it, your back will be better supported and potentially relieve your pain.
It’s similar with neck pain.
2. Bone Broth
Organic bone broth in a box at Aldi or other stores can be used. Following is a recipe to make your own.
Boil and turn down for 3 hours
Skim off the foam and throw out the foam
Take it 3 times per day (can't remember how much maybe a cup)
May start sweating. That is normal. It's clearing out your system.
Here is an excerpt from a website https://draxe.com/herniated-disc-treatment/
First off, you need to give your body the specific nutrients it needs in order to heal the area, and that means you need to follow what I call the collagen diet. Your body needs collagen to help heal and repair a damaged disc and tissues. In order to do that, collagen is found in bone broth protein or bone broth liquid.
Drinking bone broth on a regular basis is the No. 1 dietary thing you can do. You can make bone broth at home yourself or simply buy a liquid bone broth online and have it shipped to you frozen. Sometimes you can even find it in your grocery store. You want to consume two to three servings a day - it’s an absolute must for herniated disc treatment. I recommend you make a big crock-pot soup every single day to consume. For instance, combine chicken, celery, onions, carrots, some organic chicken and some chicken bone broth. That’s going to give you some of the nutrients you need to help heal and repair your low back, stiff neck or wherever you might have a herniated disc.
Also, getting more antioxidants by consuming high-antioxidant foods like blueberries is key. The ideal herniated disc treatment diet looks something like this:
·Breakfast: A smoothie with a collagen protein powder or bone broth protein powder, blueberries, coconut milk and maybe some anti-inflammatory herbs like ginger root.
·Lunch/Dinner: Soup or stew with the bone broth.
3. Consume Beneficial Supplements
·Anti-inflammatory herbs, such as turmeric (curcumin), help heal and repair damaged tissues
The following info is from an article by Dr. Axe (Click Here)
The best supplements for healing a herniated disc include a collagen protein or a bone broth protein powder. Those contain the amino acids glutamine, glycine, proline, as well as arginine. These are the amino acids that your body needs for collagen production and help heal damaged tissues.
The following supplements are also beneficial for herniated disc treatment:
·Omega-3 fish oil supplement - 1,000-2,000 milligrams a day - or a fish roe supplement
·MSM supplement , a sulfur-containing supplement that helps with joint repair
·Glucosamine and chondroitin

5. Hot tub/Jacuzzi.
This worked best for me at night just before bed, I would go in the hot tub to loosen the muscles, then I would do the stretching exercises.
6. CT-guided pulsed radiofrequency
(I never tried this, but looks interesting)
Except from email from Jeff Reagan’s Daily Health Newsletter:
But, if your back pain is due to a herniated disk - which is pretty common - there's a new treatment coming down the pike. It looks promising. Heck, if it works as advertised, it's flat-out amazing.
Now, the treatment does involve a needle, so if you hate needles, you'll have to suck it up. But it'll be worth it.
The doctor inserts the needle carefully into your affected disk. Then a probe goes into the needle. And for ten minutes, the probe sends out pulses of electrical energy into your damaged disk.
That's it. In tests, it works for 90% of cases. And for some people, the pain is gone completely within a day! Imagine, waking up tomorrow, completely pain free…
Even better, in 80% of cases, patients report being pain free a year later.
The official name of this procedure is
CT-guided pulsed radiofrequency.

My exercises consist of:
Sitting on the ground with legs out. Stretching hamstrings by leaning forward (both legs together, then one leg trying to put head as close to knee as possible, then the other knee)
Then while sitting on the floor I take one leg and stretch it over the top of the other leg to stretch the butt muscles & side of the legs. I switch legs and repeat.

Kind of like this, but I do it
sitting up on the floor holding my hands on the legs But sometimes I do this one like it looks here in bed.
I do 20 push ups (on my knees)
Then a cat stretch
Then I stand in the doorway and stretch the groin muscle. And also reach up to the door jam and stretch the shoulder muscles, kind of like this only holding onto the sides of the doorway
