Usually, loss of lumbar lordosis due to muscle spasm is a symptoms of an underlying problem, rather than a problem in and of itself. So, the underlying condtion needs to be identified and treated.

But, the symptom of muscle spasm and pain often responds well to traction, massage, and chiropractic treatment.

However, if you truly have the inability to urinate or move your bowels (not just because of the pain), that would need to be evaluated and treated on an emergent basis.

Good luck.
