The wide range of literature on the primary development of the vertebral column is mainly concerned with the vertebral bodies and the intervertebral disks. The earliest conclusive document of the reorganization of the vertebral column was given by Sensenig. Tondury focused himself majorly on the time and order of appearance of the centers of ossification in the vertebrae, and the fusion of the neural arches with the bodies. It was Verbout who finally provided a clear view of the definitive segmentation of the elements of the vertebral column. Regarding clinical literature, a huge amount of work exists on the functional interpretation of the vertebral joints, which are referred as the “guide rails of movement.”
