Spinal cord : Your specific health concerns are best answered by seeing a doctor in person. Spinal cord compression usually means that there is constant pressure on the cord without regard to position. A displaced disc can temporally apply pressure on the spinal cord and cause symptoms and objective changes like weakness based on the change in position.
