The Cervical Spine
The cervical spine consists of seven vertebrae.
Shown here are the third cervical, (C3) through the seventh
cervical, (C7) vertebrae.
the nerves that pass through this area are involved with subluxation
areas such as the neck muscles, the shoulder, as well as the arms
and hands are affected. In these situations, problems such as neck
pain, arm pain, numbness, stiff neck, bursitis, as well as many
other musculoskeletal problems are possible.
In addition to these areas, nerves originating in
this area of the spine innervate the throat, sinuses, nose, thyroid
gland, lymph nodes, diaphragm, and other organs and systems.
subluxation is involved in these areas a variety of functional
problems can result.
It is imperative for the organs, systems, muscles,
joints and all other tissues in these areas to receive proper nerve
signals in order for them to function as they were intended.
Subluxation reduces this function thus allowing the areas supplied
by the nerves to be working at less than their optimal ability.
As with any portion of the spine, subluxations in
this area can also have an effect on other segments of the spine and
creating imbalances, postural problems, and functional problems
