Nervous Disorders Connected With The Middle Spine.

The Areas Of The Body Effected By The Nerves Of The Thoracic Spine.

The eighth vertebra is the first of the thoracic spinal area or 1T.  1T is connected with arms from the elbows down, including the hands, wrists and fingers, the esophagus and trachea.  Problems related to a 1T misalignment or malfunction can be asthma cough, difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, pain in the lower arms, hands, wrists or fingers.

2T nerves connect to heart, including the heart valves and pericardium (covering of the heart) and the coronary arteries.  Related problems can be heart problems and certain chest conditions.

3T nerves connect to lungs, bronchial tubes, pleura (covering of the lungs and inner surface of the chest), chest and breast.  Related problems can be bronchitis, pleurisy, pneumonia, chest and respiratory congestion and influenza.

4T nerves connect to the gall bladder and its common duct.  Related problems can be jaundice, shingles and gall bladder problems.  Gall bladder problems can affect the liver.

5T nerves connect with the liver, solar plexus and affect the blood in general through the liver connection.  Problems can include fever, poor circulation, low blood pressure, anemia, arthritis and liver conditions,

6T nerves connect with the stomach.  Related problems can include heartburn, nervous stomach, indigestion, and general stomach problems.

7T nerves connect with the pancreas and duodenum.  Related problems can be ulcers, gastritis and, although it’s never been proven that a misalignment of the 7th thoracic vertebra could cause diabetes, it seems logical that an impingement of the nerve to the pancreas could be detrimental to any diabetes related condition.

8T nerves are connected to the spleen.  The spleen is a major part of an overall healthy immune system function.  Problems related to a misalignment of the 8th thoracic vertebra include lack of red blood corpuscles to the fetus during pregnancy and general lowered resistance to all forms of disease.  See information in my article to be posted on the spleen.

9T nerves connect to the adrenal and suprarenal glands.  Related problems can be allergies, hives, hyper or hypoadrenia, low back or knee pain, eyes that are sensitive to light (especially driving at night), muscle spasms, nervousness and even convulsions.  See my to be posted article on adrenals.

10T nerves connect to the kidneys.  Traditional Oriental medicine considers the kidneys as the body’s most important organs.  Related problems can be any that are related to kidney malfunction with others being hardening of the arteries, chronic fatigue, nephritis (inflammation of the kidney) and pyelitis (inflammation of the part of the kidney from which urine drains into the ureter). See my to be posted article on the kidneys.

11T nerves connect with the kidney and kidney ureter.  Related problems can include skin conditions such as boils, eczema, pimples and acne.  See my to be posted kidney article.

12T is the last of the thoracic vertebra and connects to the small intestine, and circulation of the lymph.  Related conditions can include rheumatism, gas pains, certain types of sterility and all lymph and small intestine malfunctions.  See my to be posted articles on the lymph system and small intestine.
