The spine is an extremely important part, the spine is a column of bones consisting of many vertebrae overlapping each other, responsible for supporting the body, moving and protecting the spinal cord. The spine is composed of 32 - 34 vertebrae, connecting from the base of the skull to the sacrum. The vertebrae are stacked and connected to each other by ligaments and muscles. Classification according to the vertebrae, the spine is divided into 5 segments including:
7 cervical vertebrae (symbol C1-C7) 12 thoracic vertebrae (designated D1-D12) 5 lumbar vertebrae (symbol L1- L5) 5 sacral vertebrae (symbol S1-S5) The coccyx (tailbone). In between the vertebrae from C2 to S1 there is the presence of discs. The disc is a slimy nucleus, located between 2 consecutive vertebrae, surrounded by a fibrous ring firmly attached to the vertebral bodies. The spine is held more firmly by a system of ligaments and layers of muscles, helping to keep the spine in an upright position.
In the human body, the central nervous system includes the brain and spinal cord, in which the brain is located in the skull and the spinal cord is located in the spinal canal. The brain helps control the entire body's activities through the pathways in the spinal cord.
The spinal cord has spinal nerve sections corresponding to the vertebrae, each segment of spinal nerves will govern certain organs in the body.

Diagnostic mechanism of spinal manipulation method:
When the body appears sick / begins to have symptoms of the disease, on the The corresponding vertebrae will also appear pathological reflexes. The changes of the spine are all derived from each nerve segment originating from the disturbed spinal cord. After determining the pathological reflex point on the vertebrae, the doctor will apply an appropriate force (select choose the direction and direction of impact depending on the specific case) on the spine, helping the patient gradually erase that pathological reflex, restore balance to the body, this method is called spinal manipulation.

Temperature: The spine method is based on the skin temperature on the body, if the normal body temperature is healthy, when the abnormal skin temperature is a manifestation of the disease, this is the basic basis for examination. disease and monitoring in therapy.
