Have you ever been told that when you had a health problem it was “nervous”? Most of the time it’s true. Our central nervous system can cause many health issues. All innervations of our body come from our spine. Between each vertebrae, there are nerve branches that divide themselves multiple times until they reach an organ or a specific structure. Every organ is innervated by several nerve bundles to make sure that the innervation is not completely gone in trauma cases. These nerve branches might suffer from mechanical or traumatic lesions like they would in a fall, a bad posture or an accident. We can also disturb the nerve integrity by psychological causes, an inadequate diet or taking excessive medication. The psychological aspect would include negative thoughts, elevated stress levels, anger and frustations. They must be controlled in order to minimize the negative impact on the nervous system.
The vertebrae and their correspondences
So as mentioned above, each vertebrae has its correspondences with many structures.
Heart : from 4th cervical to the 6th thoracic
stomach : 4th cervical and 6th thoracic
Intestines : from 8th thoracic to the first lumbar
Brain : 4 first cervical vertebrae and second lumbar
Lungs : 4th cervical, first, second and third thoracic
Furthermore, if you have a blockage or vertebral compression that disturbs the functioning of one or some major organs, I would strongly advise you to do some very specific stretches for the spine called ELDOA or to get treated with osteopathic techniques to improve blood and nervous flow. You will often find that at the region it hurts, or where the innervation is blocked you will have more difficulty performing the exercise. This is often caused by a lack of mobility of the tissues in that region. It is even more important to make the tissues move by doing specific stretches and exercises to strengthen the para-vertebral muscles which are essential to an optimal functioning of your spine and your organs health.
