Do lots of stretches - that wont fix joints out of alignment though - nothing will but a Chiro.
Right now, I would massage her with liniment and cold hose her back for now, until you can get the funds to get her taken care of.
I would also look into getting a Proffessional Saddle Maker/Fitter out to examine your saddle and your saddle on your horses back - to help you find the right shape and size that your horse needs so ensure that this issue doesn't come about again.
You can do all the lunging you want, but that isn't going to adjust her joints that are already out. You can do carrot stretches, but all that'll do is work on muscles, not joints that are out.
When I had Nelson recently done, his lower vertibra were out, but so was his pelvis, his jaw, his poll and his neck. Luckily my Chiro costs me $50 :)
