back muscle stiffness?

Stretch!

Stiffness
if stiffness is due to muscle tightness/imbalance a good stretching program can be helpful. Be mindful of your posture in both sitting and standing. It could also be due to arthritic changes in the back. If associated with pain, persistent stiffness, do see your doctor. A physical therapist can be helpful in designing a stretching program once you have an appropriate diagnosis.

Dr. Bernstein Joel answered:

I have neck stiffness what do I do?

Muscles or joints

Fever
In the absence of a fever or other signs of infection, a stiff neck usually is the result of muscle hyperactivity or possibly arthritis. Depending on your age, as always, you need a diagnosis. Heat, muscle relaxants, anti-inflammatory meds may help. But as I so often emphasize in these short answers, seek a diagnosis. Treatment will logically follow. Seeing a physiatrist comes first.
