Sleep : Extra pillow under lower back while laying on your back, and as bonus, maybe pleasant theme on ceiling above your head.

Stretch ; exercise: For most, simple stretching and exercise suffices. Heat can help as can some over the counter remedies and medications like tylenol, (acetaminophen) ibuprophen or Naproxen if no medical contraindications. Weight control and not smoking play a role as well. Regular exercise is important.
