Fun Facts About Your Spine

You may think that your spine is just some boring long bone in your back; however, your spine has a lot of interesting facts that you’ve never known about. Here are a few:

  • Humans and Giraffes have the same amount of vertebrae in their spines
  • Your spine is super flexible: it can bend back enough to create ⅔ of a circle
  • Your spine has memory: your spine will remember the posture you sit in and continue to sit that way. That’s why it’s hard to get rid of bad posture.
  • Your spine has over 120 muscles in it
