Lumbar Spine Models
Like other sections of the vertebral column, the lumbar spine supports much of the weight of the human body, and allows for many movements. Its placement between the thoracic vertebrae and the pelvis makes it like a bridge between the torso and lower body, and its health is vital to our ability to move. The vertebrae of the lumbar spine are characterized by their wide, thick shape, and studying these unique vertebrae independently of the thoracic and cervical sections is very important.
Study the Lumbar Spine with These Anatomical Models
Our spines are under a lot of pressure every day, especially the vertebrae that make up our lumbar spine. It’s no wonder so many of us have low back pain – This region is constantly engaged by our movements, including the simple act of sitting at a computer. This coupled with the poor posture of so many people can lead to serious issues in the lumbar spine region. Help your patients and students understand the importance of this section of the spine with one of our incredible collection of lumbar models.
The lumbar spine’s uniquely shaped vertebrae give it more stability and strength than other sections of the spine. It is also home to several vital muscles, such as the spinalis, a thick tendon which runs all the way from the sacrum to the neck. This region is especially subject to disc herniation, vertebral degeneration, and nerve pinching.
