SPINE ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY

 

REGIONS OF THE SPINE

 

The spine is divided into the following regions:

Cervical     7 vertebrae

Thoracic  12 vertebrae

Lumbar     5 vertebrae

Pelvic        5 fused sacral vertebrae and 4 fused coccygeal                      vertebrae 

 

 

 

 

 

 

FUNCTION OF THE SPINE

   

  • Carries and supports the thoracic rib cage
  • Provides attachment for muscles
  • Supports and protects the spinal cord
  • Absorbs shock
  • Produces and transmits movement

 

 

ANATOMICAL PLANES

 

  • Sagittal plane - divides the body into left and right
  • Frontal plane - divides the body into ventral

       ( front of the body ) and dorsal ( back of the body )

  • Transverse plane - divides the body into superior

       ( near the head ) and inferior ( farther from head )

The spine and spinal cord

     All the functions and senses of our body are controlled by the central nervous system - CNS.

     This system consist of the brain, spinal cord, and a chain of peripheral nerves that spread throughout the body from the spinal cord.

The spinal cord extends from the base of the brain, to inside the bones of the backbone,  known as the spine or the spinal column. The spinal cord does not extend the full length of the spinal column, but ends in the small of the back (the lumbar area). The spinal cord is surrounded by cerebrospinal fluid - CSF and by several layers of protective structures called meninges. Meninges are made up of three different layers: dura mater (outer layer), arachnoid mater (middle) and pia mater (inner). The dura mater is the strongest outermost layer. The backbone is made up of bones called vertebrae. The nerves spread out from the spinal cord, between the vertebrae. At each vertebral level of the spine there are a pair of nerve roots. These nerves go to supply particular parts of our body.

lateral spine sclerosis:

an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in which degeneration of the lateral tracts of the spinal cord causes spastic paraplegia:
flaccid or spastic paralysis of the lower limbs.
