Facet arthritis: A very common and overlooked cause of morning back pain and stiffness is facet joint arthritis. It is important to know if this is the cause because it has a very simple and effective treatment. To find out if this is causing your pain, see a well qualified pain medicine physician who can do simple interventional pain procedures.

Best to See a Doctor: There are a number of possibilities. It may be as simple as muscles tensing all night while you sleep, giving you a stiff back in the morning. It can also be signs of a spinal form of arthritis, known as seronegative spondyloarthropathies (isn't that a mouthful!). A rheumatologist or a physical medicine ; rehabilitation doctor would be your best bet!

Uncertain: Is this a chronic problem? If you just woke up this way - it may be related to how you were positioned when you slept. This can't be diagnosed with the information that is available. A history, physical examination & other studies may be needed to determine cause/causes. Once accurately assessed a treatment plan can be developed.
