Spinal Anatomy

Spine anatomy is separated into 4 important segments, regularly characterized by the number of vertebrae (the round bones that make up the structure of one's spine) in each area. Vertebrae are likewise some of the time called 'vertebral bodies'.

Cervical spine (neck) - contained 7 cervical vertebrae (named C1 to C7), beginning with C1 at the highest point of the spine and completion with C7 at the base of the cervical segment of the spine. Neck problems can cause neck torment and additionally torment that transmits down the arms to the hands and fingers.

Thoracic spine (upper back) - made up of 12 thoracic vertebrae (known as T1 to T12), which are connected to the rib bones and sternum (bosom bone). Since this piece of the spine is immovably appended to the ribs and sternum, it is entirely steady and has fewer problems related to movement.

Lumbar spine (lower back) - normally including 5 vertebrae (known as L1 to L5), which have a lot of movement and adaptability. Since this segment of the spine bears the greater part of the body's weight and takes into account the most movement (which stresses the anatomical structures), this is the region related to most back issues. Issues in the low back can cause torment that emanates down the legs to the feet.

Sacral region (base of the spine) - situated beneath the lumbar spine, the sacrum is a progression of 5 hard portions intertwined (known as S1 to S5) that make a triangular-shaped bone that fills in as the base of the spine and makes up some portion of the pelvis. The fragment where the lumbar spine meets the sacral district, L5-S1, is a territory that is inclined to decline and make back issues. Four little bones that stretch out down from the sacrum make up the coccyx (the tailbone at the base of the spine).
