The small bones of the spine are called vertebrae and are designed to fit together in an S-shape.
They may have united, I am unsure still but when I stimulate my pineal gland or my sacral (Male Elixir Meditation) the excreted energy flows along the spine instead of flowing everywhere.
Caution The Integra Spine implants and instruments are designed and tested for use only with the Atoll Occipito-Cervico-Thoracic.

Indications for Use The intended use of the Malibu™ system, when used as a Pedicle Screw Spinal System or Spondylolisthesis Spinal Fixation Device System, is to provide immobilization and stabilization of spinal segments in skeletally mature patients as an adjunct to fusion in the treatment of the following acute and chronic instabilities or deformities of the thoracic, lumbar, and sacral spine.

When a disorder in the lower back (lumbar spine) exists, it is likely to cause sciatica.
Although research has shown that a specific diagnosis can be reached in greater than 90% of spine conditions presenting to an interventional spine specialist2, most patients presenting to their primary care physician with low back pain are given a non-specific diagnosis.
However, sitting for long periods of time can put stress on a person’s neck, spine, shoulders, and even legs if their work station is improperly set up.
Drew Lyons Micah Mansfield Animal Design Project #1 Thrinaxodon Thrinaxodon, a synapsid cynodont, was a small, mammallike reptile that lived 253 million years ago in the late Permian. It disappeared during the extinction event 245 million years ago at the end of the Olenekian portion of the Triassic period. The discovery of Thrinaxodon was important as a transitional fossil in the evolution of mammals. Cladogram showing the relationship of Thrinaxodon to mammals (Botha and Chinsamy, 2005). Fossils of Thrinaxodon were found in modern day South Africa and Antarctica, providing strong evidence that Thrinaxodon once roamed an area that combined these land masses because the physiology of Thrinaxodon suggests it could neither swim long distances nor fly. Current day separation of fossils by a vast ocean helped scientists understand plate tectonics and the existence of a supercontinent called Pangea. Pangea: Image taken http://www.metafysica.nl/wings/wings_3a.html. The inserted black box shows the location where Thrinaxodon fossils were found and where it likely lived during the Late Permian and Early Triassic periods. Thrinaxodon was 30 to 50 cm in length, 10 cm tall, had a large, flat head and legs somewhat characteristic of fossorial animals that splayed out slightly from the torso, creating a 15 cm wide stance. Indentations in fossils of its skull provide strong evidence that Thrinaxodon had whiskers. Whiskers are a very beneficial adaptation for predators at night because it would allow the animal to better sense its surroundings in low light conditions, giving it a competitive advantage over its prey and other predators that compete for similar resources. If it had whiskers then there may have been fur as well, indicating that it was homeothermic since fur functions to insulate the animal from the outside conditions, so the animal’s temperature is being driven more by internal processes. Being one of the earliest mammallike organisms with fur, it was most likely less dense than the fur modern mammals have (prehistoricwildlife.com, 2011). Thrinaxodon had many mammalianlike adaptations that in ways allowed it to function in similar ways as modern day mammals, suggesting it was a distant ancestor of mammals. Key morphological innovations allowed for increased metabolic rates and its survival through the PermianTriassic extinction event. These included features in Thrinaxodon’s skeleton such as the addition of lumbar vertebrae on the spine and the shortening of thoracic vertebrae, one additional occipital condyle, the presence of a masseteric fossa, and a hardened secondary palate. The segmentation of the spine allowed for increased weight bearing and movement in the lower back. Segmentation, in combination with the absence of ribs in the lower abdomen, suggests the presence of a diaphragm. The ribs now form a chest cavity that houses the lungs and provides an attachment surface for the diaphragm, which allows for increased respiration efficiency and minimum energy expenditure due to breathing (Cowen, 2000). The addition of an occipital condyle functioned to increase articulation with the atlas vertebrae and permitted more movement, which allowed it to be more aware of its surroundings and potential predators. The masseteric fossa presented a larger surface area for muscle attachment on the dentary bone to make chewing and processing food more efficient, which in turn leads to a faster metabolism. One of the most important adaptations, especially for carnivores, is the presence of the hardened secondary palate that allowed for breathing through the nose while chewing, which is important in order to take down struggling prey or chew for a longer period of time while still maintaining the ability to breathe (prehistoricwildlife.com, 2011). Thrinaxodon also possesses the beginnings of a brain case, which is shown by the epipterygoid bone expanding to alisphenoidlike proportions, as well as nasal turbinates, which are “convoluted bones in the nasal cavity that are covered by olfactory sense organs” (Cynodontia). The teeth of Thrinaxodon display the mammalian traits of thecodontia (teeth present in the socket of the dentary) and differentiated teeth. In its tooth differentiation, the three cusped post canines that Thrinaxodon was named after were important so it could thoroughly chew its food and decrease the time of digestion. This also suggests a faster metabolism that was more like modern mammals, as well as an important evolutionary step towards the tribosphenic molar (Estes, 1961). Due to this increased metabolism, Thrinaxodon was eurythermic, meaning it was able to function in a broad range of temperatures, and was essentially homeothermic.
(Good hands are a given.) Whether it’s massaging the uncomfortable knots out of shoulders that have been hunched over a desk every day, adjusting a spine that’s been strained from 40 hours a week in an office chair, or strengthening a wrist made weak from an awkward fall on the stairs, our variety of treatment options can be made to fit your particular needs.
