Spinal Terms

The spine is an incredibly intricate structure. Your vertebrae, nerves, and discs work in harmony to facilitate motion and communicate with the rest of the body, so it’s only natural that such a complex area of the body comes with some complex vocabulary. If you’re suffering through back pain, it may help to know the names of certain body parts and spinal conditions. Hopefully, this will help you better communicate with a doctor and get an accurate diagnosis. Here’s a list of some spinal terminology worth knowing.

  • Annular Tear
  • Cervical Spine
  • Discectomy
  • Foraminotomy
  • Herniated Disc
  • Lamina
  • Laminotomy
  • Lumbar Spine
  • Pedicles
  • Sciatica
  • Sciatic Nerve
  • Scoliosis
  • Spinal Decompression
  • Spinal Neuralgia
  • Spondylitis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Stenosis
  • Whiplash
  • Thoracic Spine
