“Dermatomes” – The Dermatome Chart poster
This dermatome map shows how different levels of the spine relates to different parts of the body. Apart from being educative it is also eye-catching and will catch the attention of every practice member. An essential poster to display in any stylish health clinic.
We strongly recommend combining this poster with our other neurology posters “The Autonomic Nervous System” and “The Nervous System“. The better your practice members understanding of the nervous system is, the better they will understand the importance of the care you provide.
Text from the Dermatome poster:
A dermatome is an area of skin that is mainly supplied by a single spinal nerve. Each nerve relays sensation from a particular region of the skin to the brain.
Symptoms that follow a dermatome (e.g. pain or a rash) may indicate a pathology that involves the related nerve root.
