In 1998 the Office for National Statistics reported that back pain was the leading cause of sickness absence from work in the UK with other a million people absent from work because of it.
If you run your own business taking time because of back pain is a luxury most people can't afford - and to be fair you might not have to. A common myth surrounding back pain is that a person should rest as much as possible. However, we now know that you should not rest (lie down) completely as this leads to a slower recovery and perhaps a less complete recovery.
It is important to keep your blood flowing by moving around if your pain isn't too severe because the more you move and learn to relax (yes, I know you are in pain and I did say relax!) the easier it becomes for you to recover.
Having a set of exercises that help with chronic back pain is also a good idea.
