Learn How Vertebra Nerves Affect Your Body

Interactive Tour of Your Spine


How can one tiny vertebra affect your health?


Vertebral subluxation occurs when one of the many little bones (vertebra) in your spine becomes misaligned thereby interfering with the vital nerve supply in the spinal cord.


The brain uses the spinal cord to communicate with every part of your body. When that communication is interrupted, health problems occur.


Click on the buttons corresponding to the various vertebrae on the right to find out how subluxation of each bone will adversely affect your health.


Only a chiropractor can correct vertebral subluxation.
