Cause #3: Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a medical condition that causes gradual weakening of bones. This can lead to poor posture including a curved back. The resultant compression of bones in the spine may lead to vertebral fractures which can cause upper back pain.

In many cases, people with osteoporosis don’t know that they have it until the bones become so weak that they easily fracture. The fractures may occur for no apparent reason. But because osteoporosis leads to gradual weakening of bones, it gets to a point whereby the bones are unable to bear the body weight, let alone any other kind of load. In case you notice a change in your posture or some pain in your back, you should see a doctor.
