Basic of Human Skeletal System
Basic of human skeletal system includes all of the bones and joints. Every bone is made up from many cells, protein fibers, and minerals. The skeletal system of human body is as a scaffold that gives support and also protection for the soft organ that make up the rest of the human body. The skeletal system also place for muscles attachment to allow movements at the joints. In the skeletal system there is the red bone marrow inside of the bones that can produce the new blood for human body. This is very important for human body.
The bone of human body is as like warehouse for iron, calcium, and energy in the form of fat. The skeleton will be growing up together with increasing age. The skeletal system in an adult body has 206 individual bones. The bones are arranged from two major divisions that is axial skeleton and appendicular skeleton. The axial skeletons are placed along the body midline axis and this skeleton was made up from 80 bones with following regions skull, hyoid, auditory icicles, ribs, sternum, and vertebral column. And the appendicular skeleton was made up from 126 bones with following regions upper limbs, lower limbs, pelvic girdle, and pectoral or shoulder girdle.
All of the bones of the human body can be break down in five types, long bones are the longer and wide that are the major bones of the limbs, short bones are as long as they are wide and often cubed or round in shape, then flat bones are very greatly in size and shape, but can be very thin in one direction. The next is irregular bones. This bone has a shape which does not fit the pattern of long, short or flat bones. For the last are seamed bones. These bones are formed after birth inside of tendons that run across joints. That’s all about basic of human skeletal system.
