Spine

gives

strength

to

the

body

ligament

and

tendon,

spine

its

accompanying

structures

like

muscles,

tendons,

ligaments

and

so

forth,

the

body

to

move

in

various

ways,

column

provides

protection

to

the

delicate

nerves

the

spinal

cord,

helps

to

control

the

functions

of

our

body.

Vertebrae,

muscles

and

ligaments

attached

to

spine,

form

a

network

of

protection

that

keeps

the

spinal

cord

from

getting

injured.

Blood

Supply

The

vertebral

bones

of

spine

lot

of

red

blood

cells

and

minerals

its

bone

marrow.

There

are

two

types

of

bone

marrow;

red

and

yellow.

Red

bone

marrow

is

responsible

for

the

production

of

red

blood

cells,

platelets

and

white

blood

cells,

while

yellow

bone

marrow

contains

high

levels

of

fat

cells

and

also

produces

some

amounts

of

white

blood

cells.

Protection

of

Major

Organs

-

Thoracic

vertebrae

provides

a

base

for

the

ribs

to

attach

posteriorly

while

interiorly

these

are

attached

with

sternum,

which

form

a

cage

(ribcage)

and

protect

our

major

organs

like

lungs

and
