Nervous System Diagram

The brain and spinal cord control and regulate  the functions of all vital organs, muscles and cells.

This picture (right) illustrates that the nerves that control the respiratory system and lungs are located in the upper back area.  Many asthmatics have misaligned vertebrae of this region.

Note, this picture shows nerves controlling the head are located at the top of the neck.  Similarly, many migraine sufferers have improperly aligned cervical bones.

Once, the spine is restored to proper alignment, the nerves to these regions, or organs, can often function better.

The picture shown left demonstrates the different types of nerves connected at various areas of the spine. These are the: Cervical, Thoracic, Lumbar and Sacral nerves.
