How To Use The Spinal Nerve Chart:
On the chart below you will see 4 Columns (Vertebral Level, Nerve Root, Innervation, and Possible Symptoms).
Under ‘Vertebral Level’:
- C1-C7 is the NECK,
- T1-T12 is the UPPER BACK/rib cage area, and
- L1-L5 is the LOWER BACK.
Simply line up the “Vertebral Level” with the “Possible Symptoms” and you will see some surprising connections of symptoms that relate to your spine.
Chiropractic is great for back, neck and extremity pain.
It is also great for restoring proper nerve function to the rest of your body that you don’t think about.
When the nerves that supply your organs, like the stomach, heart and lungs are irritated, these organs cease to function at their optimal level.
This is why chiropractic can have a beneficial effect on certain conditions such as asthma, indigestion, constipation and premenstrual syndrome to name a few.
Removing irritation and restoring balance to the nervous system enhances the body’s capacity to heal.
Your body is controlled by three distinct nerve systems – the central nerve system, peripheral nerve system and autonomic nerve system (which is further divided into the parasympathetic and sympathetic nerve system).
All 3 parts of the nerve system must be balanced so that they can operate in unity and create a truly healthy body.
