Chapter The vertebral column Vertebral column in general The vertebral column usually consists of 33 vertebrae: 24 presacral vertebrae 7 cervical, 12 thoracic, and 5 lumbar followed by the sacrum 5 fused sacral vertebrae and the coccyx 4 frequently fused coccygeal vertebrae. The 24 presacral vertebrae allow movement and hence render the vertebral column flexible. Stability is provided by ligaments, muscles, and the form of the bones. The abbreviations C. The adult vertebral column presents four anteroposterior curvatures: thoracic and sacral, both concave anteriorly, and cervical and lumbar, both concave posteriorly fig. The thoracic and sacral curvatures, termed primary, appear during the embryonic period proper, whereas the cervical and lumbar curvatures, termed secondary, appear later although before birth and are accentuated in infancy by support of the head and by the adoption of an upright posture.
