In brief: Lots of things
Go see your physician first to make sure it isn't something scary.
Then take a look at how you sit, your general conditioning, how you use your body. For help, try physical therapy to include mobilizations and increasing thoracic mobility, treatment by an osteopathic physician and a supervised stretching program. If these aren't helpful, sometimes it's from an old injury- physical or emotional.
