Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. It is joint degenerative changes of spine due to entrapped nerve or disc prolapse and happens due to posture adjustment in effort to find the pain free posture.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
