The spinal cord moves along the anterior-posterior axis of the spine.
Spinal cord movement may be due to a lack of stabilizing forces in the spinal column
  • The spinal cord is laterally attached to the dura mater by the dentate ligaments
     
  • The spine is not “fixed”, but “stabilized” by the dentate ligaments, allowing the spine to move along the anterior-posterior axis during posture change
