Skeleton System
y The skeleton provides a framework that supports your muscles and skins and protects internal organs. y It is made up of 206 bones y Skeletal system is made out of bones, cartilage and joints

Skeleton functions
y Support-The bones give your body shape and provides a supporting framework for the soft tissue of the body y Protection-The bones surround and protect vital tissues and organs in your body. The skull protects the brain, your thorax protects your heart and lungs , the vertebral column protects your spinal cord and your pelvis protects your abdominal and reproductive organs

Skeletal functions continued
y Attachment for skeletal muscle- Parts of your skeleton provides a surface for your skeletal muscles to attach to allowing you to move, tendons attach muscle to bone . Muscles pulling on bones cause movement at the joints. y Source of blood production- Blood vessels feed the centre of the bones and stored within are bone marrow, marrow in long bones is continually producing red and white blood cells. y Store of minerals- Bone is a reservoir for minerals such as calcium and phosphorus which are essential for bone growth and healthy bones.

Axial Skelelton
y Axial skeleton forms main core of the skeletal system y Axial skeleton has 80 bones in the head and the trunk of the body. y Has 3 parts, the human skull, thorax, vertebral column

Appendicular Skeleton
y The Appendicular Skeleton consists of 126 bones in the human body is broken down into six major regions y 1) Pectoral Girdles (4 bones) y 2) Arm and Forearm (6 bones) y 3) Hands (58 bones) y 4) Pelvis (2 bones) y 5) Thigh and leg (8 bones) y 6) Feet (56 bones)

Axial and Appendicular Skeletons
y Picture on right shows the axial skeleton in green and the appendicular skeleton in purple

The Vertebral column
y The vertebral column is made up of 5 sections y Cervical, Thoracic and Lumbar vertebrae, sacrum, coccyx

Type of bones
y There are five types of bones they are: y Long bone- are found in the limbs y Short bone-are small light and strong y Flat bones-are thin flattened and slightly curved y Irregualar bones- complex shape y Sesamoid bone- have a specialised function

Long bones
y A bone that is categorised as a lone bone has to be longer than it is wide. y The long bones have a shaft known as the diaphysis and two expanded ends known as the epiphysis y Long bones include the femur, tibia and fibia in the leg and in the arm the humorous, radius and ulna.

Pictures of Long bones

Short bones
y Short bones are small ,light, strong, cube shaped bones consisting of cancellous bone surrounded by a thin layer of compact bone. y Examples of short bones are carpals and tarsals of the wrist and ankles

Pictures of Short bones

Flat bones
y Flat bones are thin , flattened and slightly curved and have a large surface area. y Examples of a flat bone are scapula, sternum and cranium

Irregular bones
y Irregular bones have complex shapes y Examples include the bones of the spine

Sesamoid bone
y Seasamoid bone have a specialised function y Are found within a tendon such as the patella in the knee

Major Joints
y Joints allow movement to occur, this happens when two bones meet this is known as articulation. y There are 3 Major types of joints these are: y Fibrous y Cartilagenous y Synovial

y Fibrous joint also know as a fixed joint y A fibrous joint by only held together by a bands of tough fibrous tissues y The most common joint is in the skull.

y These joints occur where the connection between the articulating bones is made up of cartilage for example between vertebrae in the spine. y A Cartilaginous joint allow slight movement joint

Synovial Joint
y Synovial joints the most common type of joint within the human body. They are highly moveable and all have synovial capsule surrounding the entire joint, a synovial membrane which secretes synovial fluids and cartilage known as hyaline cartilage which pads the ends of the articulating bones, y There are 6 types of synovial joints which are classified by the shape of the joint and the movement available.

Features of a Synovial joint
y All synovial joints have : y An outer sleeve or joint capsule to help hold bones in place and protect joint y A synovial membrane which produces a liquid call synovial fluid to lubricate the joint y A joint cavity which is a gap between the articulating bones y Articular cartilage on the ends of the bones to stop bones knocking or grinding y Ligaments to hold bones together and keep in place.

Hinge joint
y A hinge joint allows flexion and extension movement which is the decrease or increase of an angle. y Hinge joints are found within the elbow and the knee y A hinge joint is used in sport when pulling the leg back before striking a football

Pivot Joint
y A pivot joint allows rotation around a bone around another bone and allows rotation movement y Pivot joint is found in the neck in the axis and atlas y A pivot joint would be used to make a glancing header in football

Ball and Socket
y Movement around a ball and socket joint is Flexion, Extension, Adduction, Abduction y Ball and socket joint can be found in the hip and the shoulder y Ball and socket is used when throwing, hurdling and during a golf swing.

Condyloid joint
‡ Similar to ball and socket joint ‡ Where one bone sits in a hollow formed by another ‡ Movement is backwards and forwards and side to side ‡ This is found in the wrist ‡ A sporting example is when cricketer puts leg spin on a ball

y Similar to Condyloid but surfaces are concave convex y Movement occurs backwards forwards and side to side y This is found in the thumb y A sporting example is in gymnastics

y Gliding joint allows movement over a flat surface in all directions but is restricted by ligaments y Found in carpals and tarsals y A sporting example is in football striking a ball

Movement of the skeleton
y Movement of the skeleton is allowed due to joints and muscles y There are different types of movement which are :y Adduction, Abduction, Flexion, Extension ,Rotation, Circumduction, Hyper Extension ,Plantar flexion, Dorsiflexion , Pronation, Supination

Adduction and Abduction
y Adduction is the movement of taking a limb towards the midline of the body y A sporting example for adduction is when lowering a weight y Abduction is movement of taking a limb away from the midline of the body y A sporting example for Abduction is performing a kick in martial arts

Flexion and Extension
y Flexion is the decrease of an angle at a joint y Flexion is used to pitch a baseball y Extension is the increase of an angle at a joint y Extension is used to execute kicking a football

Rotation and Circumduction
y Rotation is the circular movement along a long axis y Rotation is used to header a football y Circumduction is the movement to make a circular shape at the end of a limb y Circumduction is used in sport when fencing.

Plantar and Dorsi flexion
y Plantar Flexion is the movement that points the toes downwards by straightening the ankle y A sporting example is jumping to shoot in basketball y Dorsi flexion is the upwards movement of the toes

Pronation and Suspination
y Pronation is an inward rotation of the forearm so the palm of the hand is facing backwards y Pronation occurs at the wrist joint when playing a forehand shot in table tennis. y Suspination is the outward movement so palm is facing forwards and radius and ulna are parrallell y Suspination is used when playing a backhand shot in table tennis

Hyper extension
y Hyper extension is the movement beyond the normal anatomical position y Hyper extension occurs at the spine of a cricketer when they arch their back when approaching the crease to bowl
