                                                         The spine.




The spine or backbone is the central support of your whole body and if you didn't have it you would practically fall apart. Your spine is curved to support and balance the body on two legs. Many mammles don't have a straight spine. Your spine has 26 separate bones called vertabrae. Vertabrae area layer of cartilage that keeps the bones from rubbing against each other. When you are getting older your spine starts to develop problems. Your discs start to wear out.



                                                           The Ribs


Your ribs have something called the breastbone or sternum to protect your heart from any damage. Most people have 12 ribs in there body. The first seven pairs of ribs are attached directaly to the breastbone. The eighth ninth and tenth  pairs are attached to the sternumby a cariladge band. Thr ribs are curved so they can protect the spine.
