The Skeletal System consists of 206 bones as well as tendons, ligaments, and cartilage that connects them all.
It performs vital functions such as support, movement, blood cell production, calcium storage, and endocrine regulation that help us to survive.
The skeletal system includes all bones in the body as well as the joints. It provides support and protection for the soft tissues that make up the rest of the body.
The Muscular System
Without muscles, your body wouldn't be able to move. It permits movement of the body, maintains posture, and allows blood circulation through out the body.
The Muscular System consists of skeletal, cardiac and and smooth muscles. The main function of the muscle system is movement but, it also stabilizes joints, and generates heat.
The Nervous System
It detects environmental changes that impact the body, then works with other systems to respond to such events.
The nervous system has two main parts; The brain and the spinal cord. It has 3 main functions which are sensory, integration, and motor.
It coordinates animal's actions and and sensory information by transmitting signals to and from different parts of the body.
How these work together
Calcium helps the nervous system send messages to the body for things like movement. Calcium ions initiate and regulate responses of central nervous tissues to injuries.
Muscles connect and contract to the skeleton to move the skeleton along with the help of the nervous system. The spinal cord receives information about pain, temperature, touch, vibrations, and proprioception.
The nervous system controls all voluntary movement systems.Bones provide calcium that is essential for proper functioning of the nervous system.
The spinal cord receives information from the skin, joints, and muscles. Receptors in the muscles provide the brain with information about body position and movement.
As the bones become more porous and fragile, the risk of fracture is greatly increased. The loss of bone in the body occurs silently and progressively. Women older than 60 years old are frequently diagnosed.
The leading cause of the disease is the lack of certain hormones, particularly estrogen in women and androgen in men. The hip, spine or wrists are most likely to be affected with the disease.
Osteoporosis is a condition in which bones become weak and brittle. Osteoporosis means porous bone. The density and quality of the bone is reduced.
