My two go-to workouts when my back starts hurting are:

Jessica Smith - Gentle Yoga - Back & Chest flow
10MS - Pilates on the Ball - Pilates for Flexibility segment

Although they didn't bother me, production values for that DVD might be an issue for you, though. (The physician who teaches the course is kind of blah; plain white set.)

This DVD is similar to the DVD mentioned above (which I also have) except it's filmed in Red Rock Canyon outside Las Vegas (not in Colorado). It is the same instructor (Nancy Wile)and it has 3 20-minute sections - Neck, Low Back and Strength and Flexibility. I really like to first two sections but have never done the third one. Her voice does sound a little stilted but I imagine she was nervous. The workouts are very good and I do them frequently because they are so soothing. I highly recommend this DVD.

T-Tapp Primary Back Stretch is my favorite for stretching the back, although any Classical Stretch/Essentrics workout will do a good job, too.

Stretching the diamond is a good one from Sherry Zak Morris:
Alice came to the fork in the road. "Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."
