Human spine. Computer artwork of the backbone or spine in a male figure. The spine is a flexible column of small compact bones called vertebrae. It extends from the base of the skull to the small of the back, and encloses and protects the spinal cord. There are 26 vertebrae in an adult's spine. The flexibility allows a wide range of movements, while the strength of the bone supports the weight of the body, and provides a rigid structure.
