In brief: Spasms.
"locking up" is usually coming from muscle spasms, that can be very painful.
The real question is why do you have these spasms? Underlying issues like joint pain, arthritis, disc problems, can all develope spasms as a superficial manifestation. Seek your doc's medical opinion.

There can be mechanical, structural isssues in the spine causing the pain and locking. There can also be medical (rheumatologic) issues that may also cause such symptoms. The best advice is to ask your doctor if you need to see a spinal specialist for evaluation and recommendations.
