Severe lower back pain

(First time problem) While working I suddenly realise the pain in my lower back. I thought it may be due to muscle problem but with time it is getting more severe as now I m not able to bend not even seat or stand ( can't put pressure on lower back). Please suggest any immediate home remedy for today... or should consult physiotherapist or doctor directly.

Hello, Low back pain is caused by injury to a muscle (strain) or ligament (sprain). Common causes include improper lifting, poor posture, lack of regular exercise, fracture, ruptured disk, or arthritis.Often, the only symptom is pain in the lower back.Most low back pain goes away on its own in two to four weeks. Physical therapy and pain relievers can help., for muscle strain and sprain. As of now please consult orthopedician first. To prevent backache Avoid lifting heavy weight, sit, stand and walk straight, you can do back stretching exercise to prevent backache(physiotherapist will teach this).
