Anatomy Quizzes & Trivia

Are you good at anatomy? Here is a quiz on back muscles anatomy for you. Back muscles extend from the bones of your neck (cervical vertebrae) to the part of your lower back (lumbar spine) and then to the base of your lumbar spine (sacrum) and tailbone (coccyx). Some back muscles are quite large and cover large areas, e. G. , large areas of the trunk. Let's see whether your knowledge is enough about back muscles or not!
