1.2.5. Saddle joints Examples First metacarpal joints Definition Flexion/ Extension/ Abduction/ Adduction/ circumduction

1.2.6. Condyloid Joint Examples Wrist Joints Definition Flexion/ Extension/ Abduction/ Adduction/ circumduction

2. Ligaments

2.1. Definition

2.1.1. A short band of tough, flexible, fibrous connective tissue that connects bone to bone

3. Axial

3.1. Consists of

3.1.1. Skull

3.1.2. Thoracic cavity

3.1.3. Vertebral Column

4. Appendicular

4.1. Consists of

5.1.2. Irregular Bones Examples Spinal Cord Pelvis Bones Skull Bones

5.1.3. Flat Bones Examples Head Ribs Sternum Scapulae

5.1.4. Long Bones Eamples Arm Leg Consists of Diaphasis Epiphysis

6. Tendons

6.1. Definition

6.1.1. A Flexible but inelastic cord of strong fibrous college tissue attaching muscle to bone

6.2. Examples

6.2.1. Foot Achilles Tendon The back part of your foot the keeps the stability of your ankle

7. Dieseses

7.1. Examples

7.1.1. Osteoporosis Bones become braise and fragile due to loss of tissue

7.1.2. Scoliosis When the backbone curves to the side

8. Fractures

8.1. Examples

8.1.1. Open, Displaced Skin my be pierced by the bone at the time of the break

8.1.2. Greenstick Happens in young or soft bones, the bones tends to bend and then break

8.1.3. Comminuted Shattered into 3 or more pieces

8.1.9. Pott A break in the ankle bones that is characterized by a break in one or more malleoli

9. Bone Cells

9.1. Types of Bone cells

9.1.1. Osteocytes They maintain the matrix Rebuild the matrix after destroying it with chemicals Play a role in bone repair and remodling Cannot divide

9.1.2. OsteoBlasts Produce new bone matrix= Ossification Make and release the proteins and other compounds of the matrix Surrounded by Matrix

9.1.3. Osteoclasts 50 or more nuclei Remove and recycle bone matrix Secrete acids and proteolytic enzymes to dissolve matrix and release stored minerals= Osteolysis
