Thoracic Vertebrae and Nerve Interactions at T7 *. Subluxation at this area can result in gastritis and ulcers. T7 is in the middle of the twelve vertebrae of the torso section of the spinal column. It has a strong center section and is larger than T6 and smaller than T8. The foramen at this vertebrae are smaller than ones at T6.
As the transitional vertebra between the cervical and thoracic regions, the C7 has some features of both the cervical and thoracic vertebrae. Like the C3 through C6 vertebrae, C7 has a thicker area of bone called the body, located anterior to the vertebral foramen.
Continued From Above… The anterior portion of the T7 vertebra is made of a wide, heart-shaped cylinder of bone known as the centrum or vertebral body. The centrum provides most of the strength to the vertebra and connects it to the surrounding vertebrae via the intervertebral disks.
