The lower prominent vertebra you feel (I assume from the back of the neck) is C7 called the “vertebra prominens” in Latin as this is the most prominent spinous process noted.

Pushing on this spinous process should not shift the spine too much to cause compression of the cord. I am unsure why you develop these symptoms.
