Heard a loud pop in lower back, spine cracking as i move, back pain.

About six months ago I heard a loud pop in my lower back. Since then I can hear my spine cracking as I move, especially later in the day. There has been no pain accompanying this cracking until recently. Now my lower back hurts when I bend over, stand for long periods of time, lift things etc... and it continues to make the cracking sound. Should I see a chiropractor or is this more serious?
