Did You Know: The dynamics and supportive properties of the human spine are provided by: • an intricate network of blood vessels • countless specialized nerve endings • hundreds of small nerve fibers which connect to structures of the spine • more than 220 specialized ligaments • greater than 120 individual muscles • over 100 intricate joints • 34 vertebrae • 24 presacral vertebrae (movable) • 5 sacral and 3-5 coccygeal vertebrae (non-moveable) • 31 pairs of spinal nerves • 23 intervertebral discs The human spinal column provides flexibility for movement, support for weight bearing and protection of nerve fibers. The spinal column surrounds and protects the spinal cord, which is the main pathway of communication between the brain and the rest of the body. The spinal column also protects the nerve roots and part of the autonomic nervous system. The spine has three major types of joints: • synarthroses • diarthroses • amphiarthroses The vertebral column consists of 24 presacral (moveable) vertebrae • 7 cervical vertebrae • 12 thoracic vertebrae • 5 lumbar vertebrae The sacrum and coccyx are composed of fused vertebrae and are also considered part of the spinal column. The cervical vertebrae are the most mobile of the 24 presacral spinal vertebrae. The 12 thoracic vertebrae articulate with 12 pair of ribs. The thoracic spine is designed for a minimum of movement, thus providing protection for the internal organs. The large stocky lumbar vertebrae are designed to support the weight of the body Info By American Academy of Spine Physicians

Central Nervous System: The central nervous system is divided into two parts: the brain and the spinal cord. The average adult human brain weighs 1.3 to 1.4 kg (approximately 3 pounds). The brain contains about 100 billion nerve cells (neurons) and trillions of "support cells" called glia. The spinal cord is about 43 cm long in adult women and 45 cm long in adult men and weighs about 35-40 grams. The vertebral column, the collection of bones (back bone) that houses the spinal cord, is about 70 cm long. Therefore, the spinal cord is much shorter than the vertebral column. Peripheral Nervous System: The peripheral nervous system is divided into two major parts: the somatic nervous system and the autonomic nervous system. Somatic Nervous System: The somatic nervous system consists of peripheral nerve fibers that send sensory information to the central nervous system AND motor nerve fibers that project to skeletal muscle. Autonomic Nervous System: The autonomic nervous system is divided into three parts: the sympathetic nervous system, the parasympathetic nervous system and the enteric nervous system. The autonomic nervous system controls smooth muscle of the viscera (internal organs) and glands. From Neuroscience For Kids & University of Washington
