Nerve Chart

Is a pinched nerve causing your problem?

A Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC, Bio-Mechanical Lesion) has numerous components, i.e., osseous (bone), neurological (nerve), connective tissue (muscles, ligaments and discs), lymphatic, circulatory, biomechanical alterations (curvatures, etc.) and somatovisceral (tissue, organs, etc.), which may cause irritation and/or compression of nerve roots and affect these components.

The nervous system controls and coordinates all organs and structures of the human body. Many nerves come from the spinal cord, pass through foramina (holes) formed by notches of 24 vertebrae in the movable spinal column, and innervate or supply specific areas and parts of the body.

Whenever specific areas or parts of the body are malfunctioning, generalized and/or specific symptoms are possible.
