Let’s see further…

The spinal cord is sheathed in a protective tube called the vertebral column.  In order to allow freedom of movement, the vertebral column is flexible in all directions.

It is composed of 24 movable segments called vertebrae.  The structure of the vertebrae is one of the most complex bone structures of the entire body.  The joint between the vertebrae is the most complex joint of the entire body also.

Amazing isn’t it?
