The skeleton is what supports your body to stay up right. Without your skeleton, you would be unable to move. your skeleton is involved in your everyday movement. Humans have a bony, jointed endoskeletons. An endoskeleton is a frame in the body that supports as it grows. The skeletal system protects and supports blood cell and stores minerals and energy.

Skull The skull is made out of not only one, but several different bones. The bones of the skull protect the brain from injury. Ribs There are twelve pairs of rib bones wrap around the body to protect organs such as the heart and the lungs. humerus The humerus is the main bone found in the upper arm. This bone allows the body to push and pull objects. Radius and Ulna The forearm, or lower arm, contains two major bones, the radius and ulna. These are parallel to each other and help arm movements. Spine The spine is made of 26 individual bones, called vertebrae. These bones work together to support the back and protect the spinal cord from injury. Pelvis and Leg Bones The bones of the pelvis is a solid connection point for the joints of the legs. In the leg, the thigh bone connects to the lower fibula and tibia bones. These bones are the largest in the body, supporting both weight and movement.

The skeletal system works very closely with other systems in our body. The skull protects our brain, which is part of our nervous system. Our skeleton supports the skin, the major organs of the integumentory system. Red blood cells and white blood cells are part of the circulatory system and are made of bone marrow. Muscular System To help the body move freely, the skeletal system works very closely with the muscular system, which contains all the muscles in the body. Each individual muscle in the body is connected to one or more parts of the skeletal system. For example, the biceps muscle is connected to the forearm, and the forearm bone is called the radius. All muscles connected to the skeletal system and have the same function. Circulatory System The circulatory system gives muscles the support they need to allow the body to move freely. The skeletal system is also responsible for function of the circulatory system. The bones of the skeleton work very closely with the circulatory system.

A common disease that can effect the skeletal system is arthritis. Arthritis is a joint disorder causing pain in the affected area. There are many forms of arthritis. Risk factors may include age, weight and previous injury to the joints. Treatments for arthritis include medication, physical therapy and possibly surgery options. Mostly arthritis comes to aged people.

A joint is where one bone moves on another bone. Ligaments hold the two bones together. The ligaments are like elastic bands, while they keep the bones in place your muscles relax or contract to make the joint move. If you have arthritis something goes wrong with the joints. What goes wrong depends on what type of arthritis you have
