What is the spine?


The spine is the most important pillar of the human body. Its role is not only to support the normal operation of the body, but also to have an inseparable connection with the organs. Different parts of the spine connect different organs in the body. When the spine changes slightly, it will cause dysfunction of the corresponding organ.

In modern society, the incidence of chronic strain of the spine is extremely high. Spinal injury can not only cause limb pain, but also inconvenience. It is even more terrifying that the spinal nerves will cause endocrine, cardiovascular, urinary system and other related system diseases or symptoms. “Spine-derived disease.”
