If you have exercises specifically for your back then take time to do them whether you are working or exercising, they do help

I dont really...must get some..i only use the one machine at the gym xx
Do some at home, the floor is a great exercise mat. look on the internet for some simple stretches for your back muscles. Any I could tell you would be specific for ice hockey to strengthen your lower back hamstrings and quads, groins and groin flexors, find some that suit you and your activities. My back and legs get achey these days if I don't stretch, i've never had back problem though I've played high impact sports for over 35 years...rugby and ice hockey
have you been to a osteopath? I used to get awful lower back pain that extended down both legs to my mid-calf. It got so bad in the end that I nearly went to A&E. I went to an osteopath and he gave me a few adjustments and I'm pretty much ok now but I have a maintenance treatment every 6 weeks or so.

Also, if you're having to take pain killers this site might be a good place to look because they sell products at a discount: <a href="http://www.axismedicare.co.uk">Axis Medicare</a>
Nursing can wreck your back even with all the latest manual handling advice... I suggest yoga as the gentle stretching should help and if the problems continue it might be worth having some sessions with a practitioner of the Alexander technichque be very wary of therapies that rely on manipulation as it is probably a posture thing at your age
And don't spend too much time laying in bed or sitting around - it will make things worse!! (Not that I am accusing you, Tinks ;o) ). You seriously need to keep mobile.
