  • Have you previously did any x-ray or MRI of your back?
  • Due to disc compression, the nerves in between got pressed and nerves are responsible for the feeling of pain, heat and cold. So, if you are feeling pain in legs and feet, then it means that your nerves supplying to this area had been suppressed.
