Weak bones can lead to back pains, which is an osteoporosis symptom that’s often overlooked as it can be caused by many other factors. These can feel dull, or nagging (mild discomfort), or sharp; aggravated by movement; relieved by lying down, etc.
Although backaches are fairly common, a painful spine due to decreased bone density should be addressed immediately before it becomes worse and leads to an abnormal curvature of your vertebrae or backbone.
This deformity could impair your posture and increase your risk for back injuries, so be sure to see a doctor for any discomfort that’s out of the ordinary.
When you have osteoporosis, chances are your posture will eventually suffer from fragile vertebrae accompanied by back pain.
A disorder called Kyphosis is the forward-rounding of the spine that causes a hump-like curvature. This normally results from weakened or damaged vertebrae. Hyperkyphosis—the more severe form of Kyphosis—may involve fractured bones in the spinal column. This could cause breathing difficulty as it puts pressure on your lungs.
Practicing proper posture could help counter the effects of osteoporosis on your vertebrae. Doctors recommend that you should always stand tall, sit up straight, and avoid slouching.
