Curvaturas de la columna

Hay cuatro curvaturas naturales en la columna vertebral: cervical, torácica, lumbar y sacra. Las curvaturas junto con los discos intervertebrales, ayudan a absorber y distribuir el esfuerzo que se presenta por las actividades diarias como caminar o por actividades más intensas tales como correr y saltar.
