In brief: Stretch

There are many causes of low back pain.
Usually acute back or hip pain will improve over 1-2 weeks with anti-inflammatories, gentle streching, and use of heat/ice. If your pain does not improve or gets worse you should contact your physician.

The treatment will depend on your specific type. Please see your md for specifics to your case. In general, lower back pain is best treated with stretching, weight control/loss, core muscle/ligament strengthening through physical therapy, and even pain meds and injections.
