If its only sprain you can start gentle low back exercises and mild lowback steretches along with hot water fermentation.once you are out of acute pain ,strengthening of ur abdominal muscles and core is required.don't lift anything heavy now and avoid awkward twisting movements.otherwise keep all the activities on.if pain doesn't subside at all, atleast go for some investigation like x-ray.

take care
