In brief: See spine doc

If your back is not straight now and/or if you have a family history of such changes with aging, then go see a good primary physician.
If there is any unusual curvature of the spine, he/she should refer you for xrays & further eval with specialist. Be sure that your bone health is good (many people need extra calcium, etc.) and stay fit.
