T 11 Vertebrae

T11 is an atypical thoracic vertebra. In contrast to typical thoracic vertebrae, it contains a single costal facet that articulates with the atypical eleventh rib.

The eleventh thoracic vertebra (T11) is located near the bottom of the thoracic spine. Generally, the spinal bones are larger and heavier the further down they are located. This helps each vertebra to support the weight of the vertebrae above it, as well as the weight of the skull and brain.

Some common symptomatic signs of T11 or T12 subluxations (misalignments) are things like blood sugar problems, kidney conditions, gas pains, chronic tiredness, constipation, diarrhea, lower rib pain or sciatica. Now, we all know there are a plethora of different causes for each of these symptoms!
