Mr. Lybrate-user, at your age you neednt have to worry about enlarged prostate, I would advise you to take plenty of liquids & go to rest room only when your bladder is full, spend a bit of extra time & pass urine.

  2. Thoracic Spine in upper back: 12 vertebrae (T1-T12)
  3. Lumbar spine in lower back: 5 vertebra (L1-L5)
  4. Sacrum in Lower back Fused: 5 vertebrae (S1-S5)
  5. Coccyx (tailbone) fused: 3-5 vertebrae. 

Significance of Vertebral column:

  2. It provides stiffening for the body and attachments for muscles. 
  3. It transmits body weight while walking and standing.

Do some stretching exercises of upper back and lateral sides. Sometimes muscle sores develop, it can be due to one side sleeping or lying, sitting incorrect position for long time. Muscle gets tight so before running do warmup exercises of body also. Take hot water formentation too.
