i think its a combination of many bending by compressing the intervertibral discs, if the vertibrae slid flat over each other, it would sever the spinal cord (thats not good). it would be the cervical (neck) vertibrae that allow your haed to move.
the way i see it, dyspraxia is an extra hurdle in every race i run, but that extra hurdle, is just extra exercise, so in the end, i will come through stronger.

I am talking about the specific name for one bone of the spine, one singular bone in the spine being called a vertebra. I know the atlas Vertebra, the first one of your neck, allows the skull to move towards your chest and to stretch girdles head up, say to look at the sky. In your neck there are 7 vertebra. (Individual bones of the spinal column, also known as the Axial Skeleton. (Though the Axial skeleton also contains the skull, Vertebrae (the plural version of vertebra) and the ribs. While the Appedicular skeleton (An appendix being:Something appended or added). containing the limb girdles and the limbs. What I want to know is the name of the second Vertebra of the Cervical/Neck (the same thing). Is that a clearer question?? (that of course is a question in its own right :mrgreen: ).
