  1. It is normal to lose height as you age due to a more pronounced spinal curvature caused by osteoporosis and muscle loss as well as spine compression due to disc dehydration. On average about 1/2 inch every 10 years after 35-40 years of age. Yes, you can also lose height following a serious spinal injury which can lead to muscular atrophy and consequently muscle loss and a more pronounced curvature.
