Hi lybrate-user. Backpain mostly occurs due to improper posture while standing sitting sleeping or walking. As you are telling that you are studying long time without any support, that is the main cause of your back pain. Sit on a study chair or use a study table while studying. Sit straight. Do stretches in between. Take rest.

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day.
