Under the skin of the human body there is a robust and flexible bone structure known as the skeletal system that support and protect the body. It is made up of over 206 different bones and gives the body its stature and outward appearance. Other important jobs for the skeletal system are to protect the soft parts and internal organs, to produce blood cells, and store mineral salts.
The human skeletal system grows very quickly and adapts precisely to our movement patterns. If we place more strain on it through our work or sporting activities, then it reacts and becomes stronger at these points.
The skeletal system supports the body, but in a flexible rather than rigid manner. Wherever two bones meet, there is generally a joint present which provides ease of movement between the two.
Although the bones of the skeletal system may seem hard and dry, they actually consist of living cells, blood vessels and nerves.
If we take a look around the human skeletal system we will soon discover that each one of the more than 200 bones, however varied they may be in size and shape, is one line in a long chain. But it is the ingenious structure of the bones, particularly their internal structure and their linkage to each other, that make the human skeleton what it is: a purposeful, coordinated and functioning whole. One can examine the human skeletal system diagrams and pictures of the skeleton system contained in the Human 3D software to more fully appreciate and understand this concept.
The human body cannot function without the help of muscles and ligaments. These are often combined into larger muscle groups which all work together. Together with the joints and bones of the skeletal system, the muscles enable complex movements and provide the human body with power and endurance. Of course, the brain, nerves and sensory organs join the bones, joint and muscle in playing their role also. This is evident in the human skeletal system diagram in the Human 3D software.
