A considerable amount of experimental evidence is available concerning the anatomy and physiology of the neuromuscular apparatus. Because of the close relationship between segmental spinal dysfunctions and the neuromuscular mechanisms it seems worth while to review the anatomy and physiology of the structures involved. Reflex activity in both somatic and visceral function is well established, and the importance of segmental spinal dysfunctions and their relationship to visceral disease is recognized clinically.
