These findings are indicative of chronic degenerative changes in the spine, which can lead to chronic back pain. I would recommend performing a spine MRI, which would give more information for possible disk bulging or spinal canal stenosis. Meanwhile, I recommend performing a lot of physiotherapies to help reinforce your back muscles.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
