Chapter 2 – General Characteristics of the Spine Clinical Anatomy of the Spine, Spinal Cord, and ANS Therefore 24 IVDs are located in the spine: 6 cervical, 12 thoracic, 5 lumbar (including the L5-S1 disc), and 1 between the sacrum and coccyx. Occasionally a small disc remains between the first and second coccygeal segments, and additional discs sometimes are found between the fused sacral segments. Frequently these can be well visualized on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. The IVDs comprise 20% to 33% of the height of the vertebral column (Coventry, 1969).

B (right), Vertebrae in flexion. Notice that the interspinous and supraspinous ligaments, as well as the ligamentum flavum, are being stretched. C (right), Vertebrae in lateral flexion. The left intertransverse ligament is becoming taut, and the right inferior articular process is making contact with the right lamina. ” The sensory information was found to ascend to many higher centers by way of the dorsal columns and spinocerebellar tracts (see Chapter 9). These higher centers included the thalamus and vestibular nuclei.
