How many lumbar nerves are there?

5

It is widely known that the lumbar nerves are the five spinal nerves emerging from the lumbar vertebrae. It is important to know that lumbar nerves are divided into posterior and anterior divisions.  Keep in mind that the anterior divisions of the lumbar nerves increase in size from above downward.  Moreover, the posterior divisions of the lumbar nerves run close to the articular processes of the vertebre.  It is interesting to know that there are 31 pairs of spinal nerves in the human body.
