Hi Acute onset stiffness in the lower back region could be due to muscular issue or an acute exacerbation to a chronic lower back problem. My advise will be to: - to maintain proper posture while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication which suits you, a proper muscle relaxant can also be added for initial 5-7 days - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc in case you are having back pain.
