An average adult has 12 miles of nerves in their body. In fact, if you were stripped of everything but your nerves, you could still be recognized as you! So if someone tells you that you’ve got a lot of nerve, you can tell them they are absolutely right.

Did you know?

Your spine is made up of 24 moveable vertebrae (spinal bones) that protect your spinal cord and allow you to move, bend and twist. When one or more of these vertebrae misaligns from its normal position, it can put pressure on the nerve root that exits between the vertebrae and cause interference to the nerves running to a part of your body. That condition is called vertebral subluxation.

Did you know?

Only 10% of the nerves in your body feel pain. You can’t feel subluxations, only their effects.

Did you know?

You can live without food for 40 days, without water for 96 hours, and without air for 4 minutes, but you can’t live without nerve supply for even 4 seconds.

Did you know?

The brain sends nerve impulses or messages down the spinal cord to the body at 270 miles per hour. The speed of “life.”
