  • Wayne,

    Unfortunately I am not able to give you any advise, other than at one time Salzworks had a link to a diagram that showed each vertebra and the associated nerves connection. It is helpful to establish what parts of your body can be effected by problems in a certain part of your spine. Maybe somebody else can offer you more helpful advise or share similar experiences. Meanwhile keep searching.

    Good luck,

  • Hi Wayne,

    I think Kin is referring to a dermatone chart, here's a link for one:


    Sounds like your L5-S1 are acting up, I had very similar symptoms including foot drop which it sounds like you've developed. Hope this helps, please keep us posted.
