Try stretching it more, as in, before and after workouts and first thing in the morning as well as before bed.
I've found this works best for my lower back:
Stand with your feet about 36 in. apart(more depending on how tall you are. I'm 5'10").
Slowly bend at the waist and place your palms on the floor or as far as you can go. You can also fold your arms and hang them in place, whichever feels like it helps more.
Hold for 10-12 seconds.
Follow this by keeping your feet in the same stance and reaching both arms to grab your ankle, heel or toe, however low you can go. Do one side at a time, holding for 10-12 seconds.
