The entire frame of our body is made of bones and is called the skeleton. It is the name given to the framework of bones that holds up the rest of our body. All the bones of our body are connected to each other. The places where the bones meet are called joints. The end of each bone is covered by a tough, smooth shiny substance called cartilage. The ends of each bone are further separated by a thin film of slippery fluid that works like oil in a car. It prevents the, bones from bumping against each other when you move. Our bones are held together by strong elastic-like bands called ligaments. THE SKELTAL SYSTEM...
THE FUNCTIONS OF THE SKELETAL SYSTEM... The function of the skeletal system is to provide support. The skeletal is the framework of the body, which supports softer tissues by providing points of attachments for most skeletal muscles. The basic shape and structure for the body is provided by bones. It also assists in movement and storage of minerals..
THE ORGANS The organs of the skeletal system include the bones, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. Bones provide the framework of the body, promote mobility, and serve as protection for other organs of the body. Ligaments are fibrous tissues that connect one bone to another, thus forming a joint that allows for greater range of motion. Tendons are also composed of fibrous tissue and serve to connect muscles to the bones. Cartilage is a type of flexible connective tissue that protects the bones and helps to form body parts such as the ears and nose.
INTERACTS WITH… The interaction between the skeletal system and the muscular system is so constant that sometimes the two organ systems are referred to as one system-- the musculoskeletal system. Skeletal muscles must be attached to something at either end to give them support while they contract. Typically this means each end of a skeletal muscle is attached to a bone.
HOW THE SKELETAL SYSTEM WORKS …. The skeletal system works to support your. Without your skeletal frame, you would be unable to move. Humans are vertebrates, meaning we have bony, articulated (jointed) endoskeletons. An endoskeleton is a frame within the body that offers support as it grows and develops. The skeletal system offers protection, support, blood cell formation, stores minerals and energy and adds movement.
