A good haircut might be the best cost/benefit ratios.
There are posture fixers on amazon for like $20 which can help. Just wear it like 20 minutes a day i believe [link]
It is the first I have tried. The underarms can get uncomfortable if you need it as badly as I do (and are overly active—I’m generally not), so feel free to do some independent research if that sounds like a concern.
Edit: Also, an added bonus is that I can breathe more easily. It definitely makes sense though, as the diaphragm can expand and contract the way it is designed to instead of mashing against organs 😅
I used a back brace and it did way more good than the backpod. If you combine this with some upper body mobilization excersise, like open book, it might be a way cheaper and more effective option. Here is the item below if it helps anyone.
I bought that to keep myself mindful and in better posture for longer periods. There isn't really an easy answer other than to just maintain the posture and keep coming back to the better posture after falling out of it.
Someone else mentioned exercises. If you have the means, you might go see a physical therapist who can assess your posture and create a routine for you to reach your goal.
A cheap back brace is absolutely worth it. I grabbed one of these (amazon link). It doesn't do much other than annoy you & feel uncomfortable if your posture is bad. That was a big enough reminder for me.
Helps me keep my shoulders back and correct my slouch when hobbying/programming.

Periodically wearing a posture corrector will also help.
it's your posture that's the problem.
Follow this guide to improve it and your pain should go down. If you are having trouble, consider purchasing a posture corrector and wearing it under your clothes, like this one (apologies for amazon link):
Sure! here ya go:
How’s your posture? It sounds like something is compressing your spine. Strengthening your core may help (all of the muscles, abs are the least of which!). I have terrible posture and a weak core. This can help, but is no way a magic bullet.

Also sitting is the devil. Stand up if you can (with proper form), and walk often. Stretch your piraformis muscle, drink plenty of water, avoid excessive sugars and saturated fats.
Finally, pain is something that must be managed. Your disks will not return to normal, so you need to form good habits now to prevent them from herniating (I have one, it is debilitating when it flares up!).
Stay positive and good luck!
It's probably your posture. If you're constantly in pain, I would recommend you look into ergonomical chair.
I use this because of my back injures but it may help too.
Something like this may also help.
Or just see a doctor?

I found working out at all really helped. I also find myself hunching a bit when I am holding my baby and standing so I work on not doing that.
Use a back brace. It's helped me. It will be sore and painful the first 5 days bc it is correcting your posture
