The words that refer to the muscles, organs, and bones that make up our body are all different, but the tissues that make up the body are organically connected. In particular, the spine is at the center of our body and directly affects our health. The spine consists of 7 cervical vertebrae, 12 thoracic vertebrae, and 5 lumbar vertebrae. While the cervical and lumbar vertebrae are areas where neck and back pain is mainly felt, the thoracic vertebrae protect the main organs such as the heart, liver, stomach, gallbladder, pancreas, and kidneys. In addition, the autonomic nervous system, nerves on both sides of the spine, affect not only organs but also the entire body.
Do you know what the autonomic nervous system from the spine does? The autonomic nervous system literally plays a role in autonomously controlling the nerves of our body. When rapid changes such as enlargement of the pupil or constriction of blood vessels are required, nerves are not transmitted to the brain, and the autonomic nervous system in the spine proceeds. Heart beating, food digestion, lung breathing, etc. are occurring unconsciously and autonomously. It can be seen that it is the autonomic nervous system of the spine that plays this role. Therefore, if the balance of the spine is disturbed and pressure is placed on the nerves, the function of organs managed by the autonomic nervous system is also reduced.
According to a study from Columbia University in the United States, when a nerve pressure of about 0.02g is applied, the function of organs and nerves related to the autonomic nervous system and spine can be lost by more than 60%. That’s why the spine has a great influence on the circulation of the body. It is good to visit a hospital to see if something is wrong with your body, but it is necessary to balance your spine first.
