Totally true of my set up as well, I sit with my back straight (i have good posture anyway, i used to march), and closer to the edge of the seat so that none of my leg movement is impeded by the throne. If your back is giving you problems definitely try stretching before you play, I stretch for my legs and arms, but I'm sure it helps my back too. Also make sure you sit up straight, this is prolly gonna help the most.
Your most important piece of gear is your throne.
I don't believe in the back rests, as they promote slouching. Hold your own self up!
