Changing my rear brake pads

(1999 Chevrolet Monte Carlo)
I have removed the brake pads and replaced them and now I cannot get the piston to go back in so i can finish the job. I have tried using a C-clamp and even tried loosening up the screws so that it would take some pressure off but it still wont budge. What should i do?

Did you remove the master cylinder cap to relieve the pressure of the brake fluid and if that doesn't work you'll need to replace the calipers as they are frozen
