It's easy as just remembering the ideal meal timings: 

  • Breakfast at 7:00 am
  • Lunch at 12
  • Dinner at 5:00 pm

Now to remember the type names :

  • 7- Cervical - I usually have cereals for breakfast
  • 12 - Thoracic - We have the breakfast and dinner connection covered so this the only one left. Hence not new conection required
  • 5 - Lumbar - I slumber in bed after dinner


Combining the above two tricks you can easly remember the Spine consists of : 

7 cervical vertebrae, 12 thoracic vertebrae, 5 lumbar vertebrae.
