Any bone can be affected by osteoporosis, but bone fractures of the spine—the vertebrae—are especially serious. Spinal fractures can cause severe back pain, and they can also lead to spinal deformity as your spine weakens and has difficulty supporting your weight. You may notice that your upper back starts to curve, causing you to hunch forward. Osteoporosis can also cause you to get shorter because your bones aren't as strong and supportive as they used to be.
