In brief: Check it out.

This region of pain could be si (sacroiliac) joint pain or another cause.
A lumbar MRI and evaluation by a neurosurgeon can help determine the source of the pain as well as prescribe treatment such as therapy or injections. There are several possible causes but only a proper eval will clue you in.
