I have struggled with this subject since the late 1960s after an industrial accident.  I have found that physical therapy helps a lot, rather than chiropractic.  I wear a back brace before doing heavy work. I stretch every morning before getting out of bed. I like hot tubs and warm weather.

Logging did not help it at all.
I try not to life more than 50 pounds. Keep moving, but use the right posture.  Hanging upside down in a device helps a lot also.
Alcohol and drugs should be a last resort.
