CERVICAL SPINE ANATOMY VERTEBRA medical negligence animations The vertebrae and sacrum of the human spine. The spine is made up of thirty-three small bones called vertebra. The seven vertebra between the head and the chest are called the cervical vertebra. Each vertebra has different parts. The vertebral body, the two pedicles and the two lamina. medical negligence animations. There are also two transverse processes and one spinous process. Each vertebra has two superior articular processes and two inferior articular processes. medical negligence animations. An inferior articular process from the vertebra above moves against the superior articular process of the vertebra below to form a facet joint. This is also known as a zygo-apophysial joint. The adjacent vertebrae are connected by the intervertebral disc in front of the spinal canal, and the two facet joints behind. medical negligence animations. Between the vertebral body and each facet joint, is a tunnel leading into the spinal canal, called the intervertebral foramen. The nerves leaving the spinal cord pass through these intervertebral foramina. medical negligence animations. This disc and the two facet joints help keep the two vertebrae correctly aligned, while allowing a controlled amount of movement. In this way, all the vertebra of your spine work together, supporting each other. The stability of the spine as a whole relies upon the health of the disc and the facet joints in each vertebral level. medical negligence animations. In the centre of each vertebra is a large hole. As the vertebrae all link up together, these holes line up and form a bony tube, called the vertebral canal or the spinal canal. The spinal cord passes down the vertebral canal, and the spinal nerves leave through the intervertebral foramina to the rest of the body.
