What would cause pain on the side of my hip? 3 days ago, I strained my low back while bending down. No other trauma. What can I do to speed recovery?

In brief: Several things

Could be a pinched nerve, a strain of a muscle, ligament or tendon, or a joint injury.
If not better enough within a week, get it examined. Nothing speeds recovery, just time. Everything else is to relieve the pain while you heal.
