Lumbar Vertebrae

We just learned about the Thoracic Vertebrae.

The five vertebrae in your lower back are called the "lumbar" vertebrae.

To help remember that, think of your back hurting so you put your hand on your lower back, and you have five fingers on your hand.
L is for lower and lumbar, and five fingers for five vertebrae!
