Thanks for posting your query.
A receptive motion is not likely to cause an osteophytic change in your spine. Such changes are usually age related degenerative changes.
A small cystic area in the occipital bone can be an aneurysmal or a benign bone cyst.
You have a feature to upload your investigation reports in the box provided on the right side of the query box. I will be able to suggest you better after going through the reports.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
