The back pad posted above, has been and is a savior for me, been using this for 4 years ever since I started the path to a healthy spine. Even in my car with a lumbar support adjust build into the seat, this bad is necessary for me.
Going the the chiro is great but you have to address the structural issues ie corrective work. This takes some learning but is easily done, esp with the books below. Super easy.
Lastly – get educated. 2 books every athlete should read concerning the spine and health esp if you have issues

Brian is a world-class powerlifter with over two decades of elite and pro-level powerlifting under his belt. Coming back from a devastating back injury in 2012 that broke multiple bones and that most experts said he would never recover from, he has returned to the pinnacle of world-class lifting (while 100% pain and symptom-free) and is now dedicated to helping others avoid the same mistakes that he made in the past through private and group coaching in Jacksonville, FL.
