The Spinal Column
The spinal column runs from the top of the neck, extending from the brain to the lower part of the back down to the coccyx. The spine is basically divided into 3 areas:
- the cervical
- the thoracic
- the lumbar
The cervical part of the spine is in the neck area. The spine is comprised of many pieces of bone, and through the spine the spinal column protects the spinal cord, which runs from the brain down to the bottom of the spine and then branches out like lines coming from the power generator that carry electricity from its main source and then branch out from the generating station to the city and then branches out from there to various parts of the city.
