Relationship of The Nervous System And Spine To Organs

Dr. Henry Windsor, who was a Medical Doctor from the University of  Pensylvaniya, has performed a medical experiment in 1921. In his clinical research he wanted to proof the existence of diseased organs and its interconnection to the curvatures of the spine (improper posture and misaligned vertebrae). In this study he made experiments on 50 cadavers from the pathology department. Dr. Windsor dissected the bodies and looked at the diseased organs. Out of 50 bodies he found 139 organs that were in a different degree of disease. He found diseased kidneys, livers, pancreases, hearts, , gall bladders, lungs etc, etc. Dr. Windsor traced the nerve root of each diseased organ back to the spine and found out that 128 diseased organs from 50 cadavers had a relationship with the curve of the vertebrae or postural disturbances. These nerve roots belonged to the same sympathetic segments as the diseased organs 128 times. 11 other diseased organs had different origin of a disease.

My previous posts: 96 Tips For a Perfect Posture and 11 Symptoms as a Sign of Warning That Your Spine is in Trouble are good prerequisite reading materials. Both of these articles go in depth about DOs and DONT’s on keeping your Posture in Check and what will happen to a spine if one will not take a good care of it.

Without the right signals from our brains, our organs cannot function at their optimum level. When a subluxationis present, musculoskeletal factors around one or more vertebrae interfere with the normal function of the nerves, affecting the nerves ability to transmit information from the brain to the rest of the body and vice-versa. Below is a list of 26 nerve roots that provide neurological supply to the vital organs and musculoskeletal system and the symptoms that associated with these nerve roots. Each vertebral Level will have a hyperlink to a 3D view of the relationship of the nervous system and spine to organs for a better visual understanding.
