Possibly yes : That would most likely be responsible for it, in absence of an injury; unless you have started work involving a lot of slouching over, as in computer use or reading etc. Since you always slouched, its now causing pain. Help yourself by not doing so and discipline yourself to avoid it.Therapy would be helpful. Back strengthening exercises & swimming (backstrokes) + nsaids will certainly help.
