I posted this last week for another member. See if this will help!

Heather, one of the exercise's they have me doing is lay down on my back and pull one leg over the other and pull on the knee across with my hand. It stretches the muscle on the rear end, and the lower back. Absolutely feels wonderful when it's released. You need to hold it for several seconds.
...also while still laying on you're back....raise one leg and interlace both hands behind it and pull it towards you. Again,.... it will stretch the buttock and lower back muscle's. Of course,... make sure this is approved with your PT specialist first. Everyone is different, and they may be having you do something completely different.
...even if this does not work at reducing your pain...it will keep your muscle's stretched out....and that is the reason I continue to do it to this day.

I have also found some of the youtube videos helpful.
