Concept Is the organ system whose primary function is to support, and protect the body, and to allow the body to move.
Functions Protection: It protecs your internal organs, like the heart that is protected by the ribs or the brain that is protected by the skull. Storage: The bones stores the minerals that helps your nerves and muscles,.
Movement: The bones help you to move, without them you won’t be able to walk, sit, run. Blood cell formation: Some bones have marrow, that is a material who makes blood cell.
Bone structure Catilage: is a type of connective tissue in the body Blood vessels: Blood vessels are part of the circulatory system, which passes nutrients, blood, hormones, and other important substances to and from body cells in order to maintain homeostasis
Marrow: Bone marrow is a special, spongy, fatty tissue that houses stem cells, located inside a few large bones. These stem cells transform themselves into white and red blood cells and platelets, essential for immunity and circulation. Compact bone: These tissues differ in how dense the bone is, or how tightly the cells are packed together. The cells of compact bone appear to be tightly packed together into a solid mass. While they are close together, this type of bone is not completely solid.
Spongy bone: Spongy bone, also called cancellous or trabecular bone, is one of the two types of calcium tissue that make up bones in the human body. Epiphyseal line: a plane or plate on a long bone, visible as a line, marking the junction of the epiphysis and diaphysis.
Bone Growth Most bones start out as a flexible tissue called cartilage. When you were born, you didn’t have much true bone. As you grew, most of the cartilage was repleaced by bone.
Joints Is the place where two or more bones meet. Your joints allow your body to move when muscles are contract. Joints are held together by ligaments. Ligaments are strong elastics bands of connective tissue. Cartilage helps cushion the area in a joint where bones are meet.
Injuries and disease Injuries: The bones get injured when they are fractured or broken Disease: One disease is osteoporosis. Osteoporosis makes the bones more likely to have several fractures.
