primary functions of bone
Primary Functions of Bone
  • supports the soft tissues of the body so that the form of the body and an erect posture can be maintained
  • protects delicate structures
  • blood cell production- RBC, WBC, & platelets produced in red marrow
  • storage for calcium & phosphorus; reserve lipid in yellow marrow
  • lever system with muscles-directs forces generated by muscles
classified by shape
Classified by Shape
  • long bones: longer than wide, shaft with 2 ends (femur, humerus)
  • short bones: length equals width (carpals, tarsals)
  • flat bones: thin and flat (cranium, sternum, ribs, scapula)
  • irregular bones: complex shapes (vertebrae, middle ear bones)
  • sesamoid bones: small bones formed in tendons (patella)
structure
Structure
  • diaphysis: shaft; epiphyseal line separates it from the epiphysis
  • epiphysis: end; contains red bone marrow
  • articular cartilage: hyaline cartilage on joint surfaces to resist friction
structure cont
Structure (cont)
  • periosteum: dense, white, fibrous covering around the remaining surface of the bone
    • outer layer: composed of connective tissue containing blood vessels
    • inner osteogenic layer: contains elastic fibers, blood vessels, and osteoblasts (cells responsible for forming new bone during growth and repair)
  • medullary cavity: space within the diaphysis that contains the fatty yellow marrow in adult bones
structure cont6
Structure (cont)
  • endosteum: layer of osteoblasts that lines the medullary cavity and contains scattered osteoclasts (cells that may assume a role in the removal of bone)
  • nutrient foramen: opening allowing vessels to enter the medullary cavity supplying the shaft of the bone (arteries to the epiphysis generally arise from the joint capsule)
bone density
Bone Density
  • Compact bone: dense bone of the diaphysis consisting of repeating patterns of solid bone tissue organized into concentric layers (long bones)
  • Spongy or cancellous bone: latticework (large spaces) arrangement packed with red marrow; resists stresses of weight & postural changes as well as muscular development (short, flat, irregular, and epiphysis of long bones)
classification of joints
Classification of Joints
  • Fibrous (synarthroses): lacks a joint cavity and the articulating bones are held very closely together by fibrous connective tissue; they permit little or no movement
    • sutures
    • syndesmoses
    • gomphoses
sutures
Sutures
  • found between the bones of the skull and are united by a thin layer of dense fibrous connective tissue
syndesmoses
Syndesmoses
  • fibrous connective tissue forms an interosseous membrane or ligament (distal articulation of the tibia and fibula, shafts of radius and ulna)
gomphoses
Gomphoses
  • cone-shaped peg fits into a socket (teeth)
classification of joints14
Classification of Joints
  • Cartilaginous (amphiarthroses): lacks a joint cavity and the articulating bones are tightly connected by cartilage
    • synchrondrosis
    • symphyses
synchrondrosis
Synchrondrosis
  • connecting material is hyaline cartilage (epiphyseal plate)
symphyses
Symphyses
  • connecting material is a broad, flat disc of fibrocartilage (pubic symphysis; bodies of vertebrae)
classification of joints17
Classification of Joints
  • Synovial (diarthroses): joint cavity (space between the articulating bones) is present; freely movable.
    • Gliding
    • Hinge
    • Pivot
    • Ellipsoidal
    • Saddle
    • Ball and socket
gliding
Gliding
  • side-to-side and back-and-forth movements (biaxial); articulating surfaces are usually flat (intercarpal, intertarsal, sternum and clavicle)
hinge
Hinge
  • motions are flexion/extension (monoaxial); convex surface of one bone fits into the concave surface of another (elbow, knee)
pivot
Pivot
  • rotational movement (monoaxial); rounded, pointed, or concave surface fits into a ring formed partly by bone and partly by a ligament (atlas and axis)
ellipsoidal
Ellipsoidal
  • side-to-side and back-and-forth movements (biaxial); oval shaped condyle fits into an elliptical cavity (wrist)
saddle
Saddle
  • side-to-side and back-and-forth movements (biaxial); articular surfaces concave in one direction and convex in opposite direction (CMC of thumb)
ball and socket
Ball and socket
  • movement in 3 planes (triaxial); ball like surface fits into a cuplike depression (shoulder and hip)
components of synovial joints
Components of Synovial Joints
  • articular cartilage: covers surfaces of articulating bones but does not bind them together
  • articular capsule: surrounds the articular surfaces and encloses the joint cavity
    • outer layer (fibrous capsule): attached to the periosteum of articulating bones at a variable distance from the edge of the articulating cartilage
    • inner layer (synovial membrane): secretes synovial fluid which lubricates the joint and provides nourishment for the articular cartilage
components of synovial joints31
Components of Synovial Joints
  • joint (synovial) cavity: enclosed space that surrounds the 2 articulating surfaces; contains the slippery lubricating fluid called synovial fluid
  • ligaments: thickened collagenous bands connecting bone to bone
    • extracapsular ligaments are outside of the articular capsule (MCL, LCL)
    • intracapsular ligaments directly attach the 2 articulating surfaces (ACL, PCL)
components of synovial joints32
Components of Synovial Joints
  • articular discs (menisci): pads of fibrocartilage that lie between the articular surfaces of the bones; help maintain the stability of a joint and direct the flow of synovial fluid to areas of greatest friction; not all synovial joints have them
components of synovial joints33
Components of Synovial Joints
  • bursae: saclike structures that contain synovial fluid to help reduce friction between:
    • skin and bone
    • tendons and bones
    • muscles and bones
    • ligaments and bones
body planes
Body planes
  • midsagittal: divides body down the middle
  • frontal (coronal): divides body to front and back
  • transverse: divides body into top and bottom half

anatomical directions
Anatomical directions
  • superior: nearer the head
  • inferior: nearer the feet
  • lateral: away from the midline
  • medial: towards the midline

  • anterior: toward the front
  • posterior: toward the rear or back

  • Extension: increase in the angle between the anterior (may be posterior--knee) surfaces of the articulating bones
  • Hyperextension: continuation of extension beyond the anatomical position
