Brief Answer:
hot fomentation

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The best way to treat lower back muscle spasms is to apply some local analgesic gel with a combination of menthol and apply hot fomentation to the area after ten minutes. One shall rest the area.

For medicines- one can take a combination of analgesic like aceclofenac or naproxyn along with a muscle relaxant like thiocolchicoside or metaxolone.

Short duration (1-2 days) bed rest is advisable.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
