Problems caused by a T5 Subluxation

Problems caused by a T5 Subluxation

      A subluxation is a minor misalignment of the spine causing nerve interference.   Your body communicates from the brain through the spinal cord, spinal nerves and peripheral nervous system.  Your body communicates back to the brain through your nervous system.   Your nerves are like wires but much more delicate.   They are protected by the skull and vertebrae of your spine.  The spine must allow movement so you can move but protect the delicate nerves.  Abnormal stresses can cause your vertebrae to become misaligned causing nerve interference.   Spinal joints and nerves that are stressed cause pain, muscle imbalance, and nerve interference to the tissue and organs they supply.  Each vertebrae causes certain pain patterns called sclerotome pain, muscles cause certain pain patterns and tingling as seen on trigger point charts and nerves cause certain problems according to what tissues and organs they supply as seen on a nerve chart.  This portion of the newsletter goes through the problems associated with one vertebrae of the spine.   You can find out what other vertebral subluxations cause by visiting www.backtolifechiropracticky.com.

T5 is located in your mid back located in your mid thoracic spine.   Learn more at a New Patient Orientation at Back to Life Chiropractic (events calendar on www.backtolifechiropracticky.com).
