In brief: Stay active

most cases of acute onset low back pain are related to a muscle strain and will get better on its own over several days.
Provided you have no neurological symptoms (numbness, weakness in the legs), you can use ice/heat. Bed rest will only slow down the healing, so try to push through and continue normal activities
