The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon).

That is why damage to the spine can affect sensation even in a finger tip. In general, the further away from the central nervous system (spine and brain) an injury occurs, the easier it is for it to heal. A spinal disc, pressing on a nerve, can be removed to help in some cases. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
