We have 24 vertebrae in our spinal column. Running along the center of the spine, with the bone protecting it from damage is our spinal cord which is made up from billion of nerves. Between each vertebra are nerves emerging and leading to our internal organs, muscles, ligaments, tendons and to other parts of our body that keep it functioning. There is a correlation between the health and alignment of our spine and the health of our nerve system specifically the tissues and organs the nerves in the spine are connected to. Our brains communicate to the other parts of our bodies through the nervous system. A misaligned or crooked spine will inhibit the nervous system emanating from it. In 1921, Dr. Henry Winsor investigated whether there was a connection between minor curvatures of the spine and diseased organs or if these were independent of each other. He was given permission by the University of Pennsylvania to conduct the experiments. In a series of three studies, he dissected a total of 75 human and 22 cat cadavers, known today as "The Winsor Autopsies". His experiment resulted in a nearly 100 percent correlation between minor curvatures of the spine and diseases of the internal organs. Dr. Winsor’s results were published in The Medical Times, November 1921, and are found in any medical library.
