Skeletal system By Madison Strom

Skeletal system

The skeletal system in human is a major connective tissue system that is made up of organs, such as bones, ligaments, tendons and cartilages. The entire framework of body is made up of bones, which serves as a guarding system to protect the viscera and allows locomotion. Two bones are connected by fibrous tissues that are called ligaments; whereas the muscles are connected to the bones by tendons. These connections provide the system with greater range of motion and strength. Soft parts such as nose and ear are made up of flexible connective tissues called cartilages which further protect the bones. These different parts make up human skeletal system organs. The skeletal systems in male and female are a bit different in a few aspects, such as female pelvis is more flat and round so as to support the childbirth. Similarly the pelvic angles and inlets are also different, such as angle in males is 90 degrees while that in females is 100 degrees.

The adult human skeletal system consists of 206 bones, as well as a network of tendons, ligaments and cartilage that connects them. The skeletal system performs vital functions — support, movement, protection, blood cell production, calcium storage and endocrine regulation — that enable us to survive.

The skeleton is composed of fibrous and mineralized connective tissues that give it firmness and flexibility. It consists of bone, cartilage, tendons, joints, and ligaments.
