In brief: Vertebral column

The vertebrae which houses the spinal cord protects the cord and supports the body.
We have, including the fused sacral vertebrae, 33 vertebrae, with a fibrous disc between each, that are connected with strong ligaments and muscles that support our body and protect our cord.
