At the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Henry Winsor conducted an experiment based on the idea that by adjusting the spine where nerve interference is found they can relieve stomach troubles, ulcers, menstrual cramps, thyroid conditions, kidney disease, constipation, heart disease, lung and other diseases. In this experiment, he dissected both human and animal cadavers to see if there was any relationship between the vertebrae and nerves that went to the organs. He found nearly 100% correlation. The nerves connecting your internal organs to your spine must remain free of interference. When tension builds up in a region of the spine due to physical, chemical, or emotional stress, it can cause the spine to shift out of alignment. The puts undue stress and tension on the nervous system, which can interfere with the communication between the brain and the body — called a subluxation. Subluxation can act like a blown fuse in your house. When a fuse blows, certain areas will not function properly until the power and communication is restored. By finding the breakdown of communication in the body, and restoring it with a spinal adjustment, these areas that are shut off are now able to reconnect—the body can recover and heal. Below are the points in your spine that affect your nerves. If you are experiencing issues related to what’s shown, make sure to head to a chiropractor and begin your path to recovery.
