The spine, or columna vertebralis, is the bone structure consisting of vertebrae and containing the spinal cord.

It is to carry the weight of the head, trunk, many internal organs in the thoracic and abdominal cavities and to be a solid support for them. It also provides movements of the head and trunk. Meanwhile, it forms a solid and safe sheath for a very important organ such as the spinal cord in the spinal canal.

The spine is made up of 33-34 vertebrae in humans. The first 24 of these vertebrae are connected to each other through joints with cartilages called intervertebral discs. These vertebrae are divided into three groups. These are 7 neck vertebrae, 12 dorsal vertebrae and 5 lumbar vertebrae. The coccyx was formed by the fusion of the first five of the remaining 9-10 vertebrae, and the tailbone was formed by the fusion of 4-5 small and underdeveloped vertebrae at the bottom.
