    The spinal column, and muscles around it play a key role in our lives. Most of our structural support in our back comes from structures called vertebrae. In total the human has 33 vertebrae. The bodies of the vertebrae rest on intervertebral discs. These discs have a ring of fibrocartilage called annulus fibrosus with a substance in the center called pulposus. These tissues provide flexibility within the spinal column. The spinal cord runs through the vertebral foramen of each vertebrae. Some vertebrae

They all keep their same origin and insertion points but differ by functions. They elevate the ribs and rib cage during inhalation and also depress the ribs and rib cage during exhalation. Another muscle is the lateral iliocostalis lumborum also works with the lateral iliocostalis thoracis to stabilize the back ribcage. Next the serratus posterior inferior is v-shaped

The most common deformity is the curvature of the spinal column; it can be bent anteriorly at 90 degrees and also bent posteriorly at upwards to 50 degrees ( The arms of the human skeleton can be abducted or adducted contingent upon the position the arm is in when the muscles are ossified. The joints will become locked, most commonly the mandible (jaw bone) and coxal joint, as well as the joints of the elbow, knee,
