Osteopathy: The osteopathic lesion. Spinal segments

The osteopathic lesion. Part 2

Spinal segments and their influence on our health:

C1-C2-C3 Headaches, migraine, vertigo, Vision, Throat.

C4-C5-C6 Hypertension, and diaphragmatic breathing problems.

C7-D1-D2 asthma, bronchitis and arterial hypertension.

D3-D4-D5 Breathing problems, heart disease, gastritis also.

D6-D7-D8-D9 affects all organs of the digestive system: stomach, liver, gallbladder, duodenum and solar plexus.

D10-D11-D12-L1 affects the bowel causing constipation, colitis. Also the renal system and gynecological (bleeding, etc.).

L2-L3-L4-L5 affects the large intestine to the lower limbs, sciatica, etc.. It may also be responsible for the sacro-iliac dysfunction.

We see how the osteopathic lesion may influence the different vegetative organs, according to the vertebral segment, as shown in the previous Cuado.

The affected organ will influence their function, and thus develop a specific symptomatology. For example, a lesion in the group of the D6 to D9 can cause stomach problems like gastritis, digestive difficulty and discomfort. Not to say that the osteopathic lesion is the direct cause of stomach problems. In this case, but rather understand that the organism is weakened and slowed down its function as weakness in this state of the organ is vulnerable.

Given that the disease is almost always a multietiologica nature, several factors combine to determine them, poor diet, fatigue, cold or stress, and lack of nervous discharge as a result of mechanical spinal abnormality, was installed unequivocally disease this organ. This will result in the vegetative system metamer belonging to the corresponding spinal segment in question, D6-D9, but the injury is installed in that segment will also have a specific symptom to examination by the therapist. This will be limited movement in one or more of its guidelines, accompanied by pain (as we said this would be the essential element to distinguish the osteopathic lesion). A sensitivity to muscle spasm around the affected group and alteration of the vascularization.
