I used to have lower back pain after house cleaning or yard work or just sitting a lot. I have not had nearly the pain that I used to since I have been weight-lifting. (Yes, it could be because I don’t do as much house or yard work, but I am sticking with my story.)
I also try to be very conscious of my posture now (should have listened to my mother) and practice ‘chest out and shoulders back’. I moved my computer monitors to eye level to make sure I don’t slump all day.
If back and shoulder pain are a problem for you then strengthen your back so it can serve you well for life.
