Pulled a muscle in my lower back. Should I rest or stretch/exercise it?

So flipping the mattress on the bed today was done without my leg power, apparently, as I pulled a muscle in my lower back. It's somewhat uncomfortable sitting down and walking. I wonder what the best plan is: laying down (which makes the pain go away), or doing my regular thing and keep stretching that muscle?
