Thanks for posting your query.

You might had lumbar strain. In this microtear occurs in muscle.

I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination.

In the interim, ice the affected area and take anti-inflammatory drug like mortin to reduce pain and inflammation. Avoid lifting and rest well.
