Intertransverse Ligaments

The intertransverse ligaments are interposed between the transverse processes. In the cervical region, they consist of a few, irregular scattered fibers. In the thoracic (chest) region, they are a rounded cord, which is intimately connected with the deep muscles in the back. In the lumbar region (lower back), they are thin and membranous.
