Hello there.....well Low back pain has number of causes...from faulty posture to more complicated rheumatism...but at a young age it is generally due to a muscle spasm at lower back,,what you need to do is get hot water fomentation 5 times a day to your lower back...apply any diclofinac based gel on the surface twice a day ...and just take things a bit slow...take some rest avoid unnecessary bike riding and climbing of stairs or lifting heavy weight...you should be ok by a weeks time however if the problem persisits an Xray of back along with consultation would be necessary. Regards & take care

Extension Exercises x 15 times x twice daily - lying on tummy, take left arm up for 3 seconds, then bring it down, right arm up for 3 seconds, bring down. Bring right leg up, hold for 3 seconds, bring it down. Then right leg up and hold for 3 seconds and bring it down. Repeat twice a day- 10 times. Bhujang Asana -- Lie flat on your stomach, keeping the palms out, bend the neck backward, take a deep breath and while holding it for 6 seconds, raise the chest up. Release breath and relax your body. Repeat the exercise 15 times twice daily. Core Strengthening Exercises- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day.
