      hmmm I think for me its the spinal disks because they are squidgy and this is what lets you move. Also if you have heard of a slipped disk this is what causes a lot of people pain so it an area a lot of people study to try and come up with a solution to fix peoples problems. Although I have to admit I’m not a spine person so a don’t know a whole lot about them.

      I like working on soft tissues rather than bone as its harder to hold and test so is more fun and challenging 😀
