The respiratory system includes the lungs and diaphragm which is the paired muscle in the chest cavity expanding and contracting for lung movement.  The cervical spine or neck must have proper alignment for the nerve innervations or electric connection from the brain to the diaphragm tissue.  Proper adrenal function is also required for optimal lung function.

Parts Include: Nose, Mouth, Pharynx, Larynx, Trachea, Bronchial Tubes, Lungs


1. Nose
The tissue in the front of the face where air enter the body. There are hairs in the two nostrils which trap environmental debris.

2. Mouth
The orifice in the body which is the beginning of the alimentary canal. The mouth also has the tongue which is important for taste, teeth for chewing, and salivary glands, which are the beginning of digestion.

3. Pharynx
The tissue from the mouth and throat to the “windpipe” and trachea; the tube for air exchange to the lungs.

4. Larynx
A vibratory mass of tissue that creates the tones and vibrations for voice modulation.

5. Trachea
The trachea is the tube which connects the nose and breathing tubes/passage to the lungs.

6. Bronchial Tubes
The bronchial tubes are cartilage structures that carry the oxygen and carbon dioxide to and from the lungs.
