Spinal Cord and Spinal Nerve Roots

On physical exam, the brachioradialis reflex mid-forearm may be diminished.

A relative survival rate compares people with the same type of tumor to people in the overall population.

Description: Because the lumbar spine has no spinal cord and has a large amount of space for the nerve roots, even serious conditions—such as a large disc herniation—do not typically cause paraplegia loss of motor function in the legs.

    The spinal cord is part of the central nervous system (CNS). It is situated inside the vertebral canal of the vertebral column. During development, there’s a disproportion between spinal cord growth and vertebral column growth. The spinal cord finishes growing at the age of 4, while the vertebral column finishes growing at age 14-18.

    The spinal cord does not run through the lumbar spine (lower back). After the spinal cord stops in the lower thoracic spine , the nerve roots from the lumbar and sacral levels come off the bottom of the cord like a horse's tail (named the cauda equina ) and exit the spine.
