Have you consulted with a doctor? I think what you need is probably a back massage but then again the problem can be more serious than that.What part of your back hurts? There is lower, upper and middle back pain.... Do you feel any pain when you cough or sneeze? Does it travle down your legs? What about when you use the washroom?

its between the upper and middle part of my back, and it does occasionally travel to the very top of my leg.

sounds like you need a good massage on your lower back. The pain can also be because your hips might be out of place and that can put you whole back but especially you lower back. Sometimes going to the chiropractor can solve the problem. They will give you some exercises to help with the muscles in strengthing them. Good luck hope this helps.
