Don't overdo the stretching or massage.

Squats and deadlifts but start very very light and increase the weight slowly with a major focus on form.

Edit: beginner? Get a coach and lots of guidance

This could end badly. If this is someone who doesn’t lift and isn’t in a routine already, they’re not going to start squatting and deadlifting lol

I also feel that this simple jump into load bearing exercises really skips many essential steps like mobilisation, not working through severe pain, etc.

If you are experiencing chronic pain from day to day stuff, you should really be working on routines that stabilize the affected muscle groups before jumping into weight training. That's just asking for an injury.
