Re: Leg pain with cervical cord compression
You know how you hear about someone who has a ban accident and breaks their neck and becomes paralyzed? It's because the spinal cord in the cervical region affects the lower body as well. Same goes for any impingement you have in the cervical region, depending what is impinged (and how much) you can have leg symptoms as well. It's not that you will become paralyzed but just to show you how cervical cord problems can affect the rest of the body.
