Abstract

A basic knowledge of anatomy of the spine is an essential ingredient to understanding disease and disorders of the spine. The second section of this article details the neurologic examination of the spine in patients with neck and back pain. Understanding anatomic concepts leads to an informed examination of the spine. Through the history and neurologic examination, many disorders of spinal anatomy can be diagnosed.
