Spinal subluxation from sitting?

I was wondering if it was possible to get spinal subluxation simply from sitting. I used to sit for endless hours studying at my desk in college for 4 years without taking any breaks. I believe my posture slowly got worse over the years as I was starting to hunch forward and I'm having all kinds of problems like ringing in the ears, fatigue, etc. I also have a hard time sleeping on my back for some reason and have to resort to a fetal position with my arms extended out. If I do manage to fall asleep on my back, the lower middle back area will hurt whenever I breathe for a few minutes, but the pain will go away eventually if I put pressure off my back. What kind of problem could we be seeing here? Could simply sitting for endless hours cause a problem like this?
