Human Physiology (SKELETON SYSTEM)





The skeleton is composed of fibrous and mineralized connective tissues that

give it firmness and flexibility. It consists of bone, cartilage, tendons, joints, and


Bone - a type of mineralized connective tissue that contains collagen and

calcium phosphate, a mineral crystal. Calcium phosphate gives bone its

firmness. Bone tissue may be compact or spongy. Bones provide support and

protection for body organs.

Cartilage - a form of fibrous connective tissue that is composed of closely

packed collagenous fibers in a rubbery gelatinous substance called chondrin.

Cartilage provides flexible support for certain structures in adult humans

including the nose, trachea, and ears.


Tendon - a fibrous band of connective tissue

that is bonded to bone and connects bone to


Ligament - a fibrous band of connective tissue

that joins bones and other connective tissues

together at joints.

Type of joints

DLB 11

Fibrous Joints: Fibrous joints are held together by strong connective tissue with only a slight capacity to stretch. This tough connection allows very little movement between the joined bones, thus providing great stability. Fibrous joints are found in the skull, which is made up of several bone plates held tightly together to protect the fragile brain. A dense band of tissue connects the radius and ulna bones in the lower arm forming a fibrous joint that keeps these bones stable as the forearm rotates. The lower leg bones, called the tibia and fibula, are also joined by a fibrous joint that limits movement between these bones. Fibrous joints also hold the teeth firmly within their sockets in the jaw bones

DLB 12

Cartilaginous JointsCartilaginous joints allow for slight movement and occur where bone ends are covered by a somewhat flexible, compressible connective tissue called cartilage. Some cartilaginous joints are temporary, such as those present during the growth of the long bones of the arms and legs in children. Other cartilaginous joints allow limited flexibility and provide shock absorption. These joints are found where the ribs attach to the breastbone and between some of the pelvic bones. They also occur between the bones of the spine, where they provide strength, flexibility and cushioning.

DLB 13

Synovial joints allow the greatest degree of

movement due to their structure. These joints consist of a capsule of connective tissue that encloses a space or cavity between the bones. The cavity contains fluid that lubricates the joint and reduces friction. Most joints of the body are synovial joints, which are found in the elbow, shoulder, knee, wrist, hand, ankle and foot. There are several different types of synovial joints that are classified by their shape and the range of movement they allow

Bones are a major component of the skeletal

system. Bones that comprise the human skeleton

are divided into two groups. They are the axial

skeletal bones and appendicular skeletal bones. An

adult human skeleton contains 206 bones, 80 of

which are from the axial skeleton and 126 from the

appendicular skeleton.

DLB 16

Axial Skeleton

The axial skeleton includes bones that run along the medial

sagittal plane of the body. Imagine a vertical plane that runs

through your body from front to back and divides the body

into equal right and left regions. This is the medial sagittal

plane. The axial skeleton forms a central axis that includes

bones of the skull, hyoid, vertebral column, and thoracic

cage. The axial skeleton protects numerous vital organs and

soft tissues of the body. The skull provides protection for the

brain, the vertebral column protects the spinal cord, and the

thoracic cage protects the heart and lungs.

DLB 18

Axial Skeleton Components

Skull - includes bones of the cranium, face, and

ears (auditory ossicles).

DLB 20

Hyoid - U-shaped bone or complex of bones

located in the neck between the chin and larynx.

DLB 21

Thoracic Cage - includes ribs and sternum (breast


DLB 22

Vertebral Column - includes spinal vertebrae

Appendicular SkeletonThe appendicular skeleton is comprised of body limbs

and structures that attach limbs to the axial skeleton.

Bones of the upper and lower limbs, pectoral girdles, and

pelvic girdle are components of this skeleton. Although

the primary function of the appendicular skeleton is for

bodily movement, it also provides protection for organs

of the digestive system, excretory system, and

reproductive system.

Appendicular Skeleton Components

Pectoral Girdle - includes shoulder bones (clavicle and


Upper Limbs - includes bones of the arms and hands.

Pelvic Girdle - includes hip bones.

Lower Limbs - includes bones of the legs and feet.

Skeletal Bones

Bones are a type of mineralized

connective tissue containing collagen

and calcium phosphate. As a

component of the skeletal system, a

major function of bone is to assist in

movement. Bones work in concert with

tendons, joints, ligaments and skeletal

muscles to produce various

movements. Nutrients are provided to

bone through blood vessels that are

contained within canals in bone.


Bones provide several important functions

in the body. Some major functions


Structure - Bones compose the skeleton,

which provides structure and support for

the body.

Protection - Bones provide protection for

numerous vital organs and soft tissues of

the body. For example, the vertebral

column protects the spinal cord, and the

thoracic (rib) cage protects the heart and
