Your Spine and Nervous
Your nervous system controls and coordinates every
function of your body. It is your nervous system that allows you to adapt
to, and live in your environment. A large portion of your nervous
system passes through your spine. It is your spinal cord that acts
as the major cable exiting your brain, travels down inside your spinal column
and branches off into spinal nerves at various levels of your spine.
These spinal nerves then exit between individual
spinal vertebrae and go to the various parts of your body.
