    I think physical therapy/exercise is the best treatment for all pain like lower back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, arm pain, leg pain. It reduces the pain, strengthens the back muscles. If you want to long-term pain reduction then Low impact aerobics are important. There are many options available, such as walking, bicycling swimming or water therapy.

    I would recommend Chiropractic treatment as well as the above. I also think heat and ice is really good and my chiropractor tells me what and how long to heat/ice.  I currently seeing my chiropractor for unknown acute low back, pelvis, leg and neck pain. However Chiropractic's is not just for when you get back pain, you should have a check up like you would at the doctors. Spinal health is really important as my chiropractor says, "you only have one spine and they don't do transplants so you need yo look after it". Chiropractic isn't just about having your back cracked, its deep tissue work, sinus massage, specific exercises for the pain you are experiencing and so so much more. Every week my chiropractor seems to do a new thing and I'm amazed at how much she can do. its amazing how much she feels and she know when I'm in pain before I do. I always feel better after my treatments. I can move so much more than before I went. Because I'm am having quite serious problems with my back I'm on crutches and always at about an 8 on the pain scale even with meds. my chiropractor has got me from 90* to standing up straight within 5 sessions. i know its not for everyone but i would give it ago at least once in your life.

    I think using a TENS unit should be included in your list.
