The problem is the way you are designed, your wiring loom runs through the middle of your suspension system.

I'm not a physio or doctor but I can say in terms of prevention make sure you sit up, I've been told this by several physio's ( had bad whiplash that caused issues for several years) we spend the vast majority of our day in the sitting position and we did not evolve like this.
 
Get someone to tape up diagonally shoulder to hip x2 , this means you become immediately conscious of slouching and carrying a head forward posture.
adjust the mirrors in your car so that you have to carry the right posture in order to see.
get a "kneeler chair" or better still as the 2nd poster suggested stand up to work, I do this quite often , literally raise your desk(securely).
You might get your feet looked at too, how you stand on your feet affects your knees, hips and back.

In terms of actually getting help for your problem I'd suggest a physio and regardless of how bad pain gets don't let your doctor give you SSRI type medications which they are doing regularly now for pain. These are highly problematic for a small number of people.

I find laying on my back with my feet and calf elevated on a chair helps me. The only problem is getting down and up off the floor.

If you have time for a long read, here's the thesis about lower back pain and how to potentially stop it from happening, written by a doctoral student (now lecturer) in Sports and Exercise Science.
Expect a lot of Anatomical jargon !

How did you end up with this Tim?

Did they figure out what was going on?
