Hi Rahul.
Thanks for choosing HCM.
You need not be unduly worried about this report, if you have no complaints.
However please note that the condition is a degenerative disease & you need to exercise your back to keep the back muscles strong to prevent further worsening.[You have not stated your age.]
You may consult a doctor who will do some clinical examination to see if this needs any more thought.
