One of the presentations I have to give for my conference this summer deals with the benefits of meditation and how to do it properly. All the books I read mention paying attention to posture and, for folks with back injuries, maintaining a pelvic tilt when sitting.
For the last three weeks or so, whenever I find myself slouching or sitting forward because of pain I remind myself to adjust my position. I also take a few moments each day to simply breathe and concentrate on how that feels.
The difference is remarkable already --- less back pain, less tension in the pressure points, and a new feeling of well being. I strongly suggest looking into at least sitting meditation or monitoring your breath and posture. See if it helps where nothing else does.
