2 MUSCULOSKETAL SYSTEM Windsor University School of Medicine Premed Biology September 2014

3 Pre Med – Biology Chapter 13 Musculoskeletal System There is more to lectures than the power point slides! Engage your mind

4 SKELETON Animals have a framework similar to the framework of a home. The framework in animals is called the skeleton. In animals or man, the framework has muscles attached to it instead of walls or roof. “Endoskeleton” Protection, support, and movement of the body


6 Bones serve the following functions: - Protect the vital organs inside the body Provide anchor or support to the muscles Produce blood cells

7 The Skeletal System Gives form to the body Protects vital organs Consists of 206 bones Acts as a framework for attachment of muscles Designed to permit motion of the body

8 Bone cells are living, they can reproduce resulting in the hardening of the bones called “ossification” and bone growth Not only does bone size change, their number also changes. As you grow the number of your bones increases although some bones fuse


10 Skeletal system includes the bones, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. These are tissues that make up the skeleton. A bone is a hard, living tissue and contains blood vessels, nerves and dividing cells Bones are hollow or spongy inside Hollow portion of the bone is made of “Marrow” The marrow produces red and white blood cells and stores some of the body’s excess fat

11 Cartilage – Tough, flexible tissue that functions as cusioning Found in lower nose, earlobes, trachea, voicebox Ligaments – Tough, connective tissue that connect one bone to another E.g. Hurt when sprain an ankle Tendons – Connect a bone to a muscle

12 Skeletal System Bone types Bone structure Bone function Bone growth and metabolism affected by calcium and phosphorous, calcitonin, vitamin D, parathyroid, growth hormone, glucocorticoids, estrogens and androgens, thyroxine, and insulin.


14 There are 3 main parts of the AXIAL skeleton – Skull Rib cage Back bone or spinal cord Appendages which includes the hands, arms, shoulders and collar bone and the back appendages composed of the feet, legs, knees and hip bone.

15 VERTEBRAE BACKBONE is made up of thirty-three small bones called vertebrae Neck to tailbone 33 bones Total: 1. Cervical = 7 2. Thoracic = Lumbar = 5 4. Sacral = 5 5. Coccyx = 4

16 Musculoskeletal Anatomy and Physiology Anatomy – Flat, Short, Long, Irregular bones – Muscles – visceral, cardiac, skeletal – Joints – freely & slight moveable, synovial fluid – Cartilage,Ligaments, Tendons, Fascia, Bursae Physiology – Structure, shape, movement, protection, support, hematopoiesis

17 Joints Types include synarthrodial, amphiarthrodial, diarthrodial Structure and function of the diarthrodial or synovial joint Subtyped by anatomic structure – Ball-and-socket – Hinge – Condylar – Biaxial – Pivot

18 Functions of the Musculoskeletal System – Gives the body shape – Protects internal organs – Provides for movement – Consists of more than 600 muscles

19 Anatomy Muscles- provide movement & generate heat. Ligaments- connect bone to bone injury = sprain Tendons- connect bone to muscle injury = strain Bones- protection & shape

28 Types of Muscle (1 of 2) Skeletal (voluntary) muscle – Attached to the bones of the body Smooth (involuntary) muscle – Carry out the automatic muscular functions of the body

29 Types of Muscle (2 of 2) Cardiac muscle – Involuntary muscle – Has own blood supply and electrical system – Can tolerate interruptions of blood supply for only very short periods

30 THE MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM The musculoskeletal system includes all of the bones in a body and the muscles that make them move. It supports the body and protects delicate organs.musculoskeletal system

31 THE MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM The skeleton consists of bones, ligaments, and cartilage, which are three types of connective tissue.

32 THE MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM The other component of the musculoskeletal system is muscles. Muscle tissue consists of bundles of long cells called muscle fibres, which contain specialized proteins. These proteins cause muscles to contract when signalled by nerve cells.

33 THE MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM Skeletal muscles are attached to the bone by tendons. The other muscle types include smooth muscles (generally located in the intestines) and cardiac muscles in the heart.

34 THE MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM Similar to other organ systems, the musculoskeletal system is susceptible to disease. Osteoporosis is a common disease that involves the loss of bone tissue, which makes bones weak and brittle. It is common among older women. As well, extreme movements can fracture bones and damage muscles, ligaments, and cartilage. Some invertebrates have no rigid frame to give them structure, while others have their skeletal system on the outside (exoskeleton).

35 The skeletal system  Structure and function of bone  Organization of the skeleton  Joints Functions of bone (skeleton)  Support and protection  Blood cell formation  Mineral storage (calcium especially)  Site for muscle attachment  body movement

36 Bones classified by shape: long, short, flat, irregular, round Bone enclosed in periosteum, which is continuous with tendons and ligaments blood vessels in periosteum Epiphysis- ends spongy bone contains red marrow compact bone, articular cartilage Diaphysis- middle compact bone medullary cavity- contains yellow marrow (fat) lined with endosteum (squamous epithelium)


38 Compact bone osteocytes within lacunae arranged in concentric circles called lamellae This surround a central canal; complex is called Haversian system Canaliculi connect osteocytes to central canal and to each other


40 Prenatal development skeleton is mostly cartilaginous Cartilage cells and then osteoblasts start to deposit minerals Cartilaginous disk (epiphyseal disk) remains in epiphysis Cells eventually stop dividing


42 Adults continually break down and build up bone Osteoclasts remove damaged cells and release calcium into blood Osteoblasts remove calcium from blood and build new matrix. They become trapped  osteoclasts

43 Types of bone breaks Simple- skin is not pierced Compound- skin is pierced Complete- bone is broken in half Partial- broken lengthwise but not into two parts Greenstick- incomplete break on outer arc Comminuted- broken into several pieces Spiral- twisted

44 Fracture repair Hematoma- blood clot in space between edges of break Fibrocartilage callus- begins tissue repair Bony callus- osteoblasts produce trabeculae (structural support) of spongy bone and replace fibrocartilage Remodeling- osteoblasts build new compact bone, osteoclasts build new medullary cavity


46 Axial skeleton skull (cranium and facial bones) hyoid bone (anchors tongue and muscles hyoid bone (anchors tongue and muscles associated with swallowing) vertebral column (vertebrae and disks) vertebral column (vertebrae and disks) thoracic cage (ribs and sternum) thoracic cage (ribs and sternum) Appendicular skeleton pectoral girdle (clavicles and scapulae) upper limbs (arms) pelvic girdle (coxal bones, sacrum, coccyx) lower limbs (legs)

47 posterior view p. 135

48 Axial skeleton supports and protects organs of head, neck and trunk Appendicular skeleton- bones of limbs and bones that anchor them to the axial skeleton Articulation- where joints are formed

49 22 bones in skull 6 in middle ears 1 hyoid bone 26 in vertebral column 25 in thoracic cage 4 in pectoral girdle 60 in upper limbs 60 in lower limbs 2 in pelvic girdle 206 bones in all

50 The skull 8 sutured bones in cranium Facial bones: 13 sutured bones, 1 mandible Cranium encases brain attachments for muscles sinuses


52 Allows for growth

53 Vertebral column 7 cervial vertebrae 12 thoracic 5 lumbar 1 sacrum (5 fused 1 coccyx (4 fused) Vertebrae vary in size and morphology


55 Thoracic cage ribs thoracic vertebrae sternum costal cartilages True ribs are directly attached to the sternum (first seven pairs) Three false ribs are joined to the 7 th rib Two pairs of floating ribs


57 Clavicles and scapulae Help brace shoulders Attachment sites for muscles


59 Bones of upper limb Humerus (upper arm) Radius; ulna Carpals, metacarpals, phalanges Bones of lower limb FemurPatella Tibia, fibula Tarsals, metatarslas, phalanges

60 Joints Immovable (synarthoses) bones sutured together by connective tissue: skull Slightly movable (amphiarthoses) connected by fibrocartilage or hyaline cartilage: vertebrae, rib/sternum joint, pubic symphysis Freely movable (diarthroses)- separated ligaments- hold bones together tendons- muscle to bone lined by synovial membrane


62 Types of freely movable joints Saddle: carpal and metacarpal bones of thumb Ball and socket: shoulder and hip joints Pivot- rotation only: proximal end of radius and ulna Hinge- up and own movement in one plane: knee and elbow Gliding- sliding and twisting: wrist and ankle Condyloid- movement in different planes but not rotations: btw metacarpals and phalanges

63 Types of movement and examples (with muscles) flexion- move lower leg toward upper extension- straightening the leg abduction- moving leg away from body adduction- movong leg toward the body rotation- around its axis supination- rotation of arm to palm-up position pronation- palm down circumduction- swinging arms in circles inversion- turning foot so sole is inward eversion- sole is out




67 Elevation and depression- raising body part up or down Aging and bones both bone and cartilage tend to deteriorate cartilage: chondrocytes die, cartilage becomes calcified osteoporosis; bone is broken down faster than it can be built bones get weak and brittle; tend to fracture easily

68 Risk factors for osteoporosis Inadequate calcium Little weight-bearing exercise Drinking alcohol, smoking Being female: decreased estrogen secretion after menopause Small frame Caucasian or Asian ethnicity

69 Skeleton and other systems Skin makes vitamin D which enhances calcium absorption Skeleton stores calcium for muscle contraction, nervous stimulation, blood clot formation Red marrow- site of blood cell formation Calcium levels regulated by parathyroid hormone and calcitonin kidneys (can help provide vitamin D) digestive system (can release calcium into blood


71 Growth hormone regulates skeletal growth stimulates cell division in epiphyseal disks in long bones Growth stops when epiphyseal disks are converted to bone When excess growth hormone is produced in childhood  gigantism In adulthood- acromegaly. Bones can’t grow but soft tissue can


73 When muscle contracts, it shortens and causes movement Skeletal muscles attached to bones by tendons Insertion- attachment to more movable bone Origin- less movable Flexors and extensors act on the same joint to produce opposite actions
