Physical therapy: It possible you strained your hip at the same time and you now notice it as your back pain has improved. At this time focus on core abdominal strength and exercise is important. If the pain does not change the way you walk, limit your activity, and is relieved with rest it probably not worrisome and will resolve over time. If it persists or worsens beyond a few weeks you should be evaluated.
