Transcript of Musculo-Skeletal System
Musculo-Skeletal System The skeleton protects many vital organs and here are some of them: The skull protects the brain, eyes, and the middle and inner ears. The vertebra protect the spinal cord. The rib cage, spine, and sternum protect the lungs, heart and major blood vessels. The clavicle and scapula protect the shoulder. The intestines and spine protect the digestive and argental systems and the hip. The patella and the ulna protect the knee and the elbow respectively. The carpals and tarsal’s protect the wrist and ankle respectively. Major Bones in your Body: - Clavicle
- Patella Major Muscles in your Body: - Biceps
- Calves Different Types of Muscle: Tendons attach muscle to bones and allow your bones to move at joints. How Does the Musculo-Skeletal System Keep you Healthy? - Some people seem to think that the Musculo-Skeletal System doesn't keep you healthy, but think about it: - Without your skeleton and muscles your body has no form, these keep your organs in place; otherwise you would just be a big blob of organs and skin. -Your skeleton and muscles act like a protective shell for your organs, for example your brain is surrounded by your cranium, the cranium acts like a natural helmet; without it if you fell on your head, even the smallest fall, you could die. Here's a diagram of the cranium and the brain: This is the skull, as you can see it works as a protective barrier around the brain, without the musculo-skeletal system the central nervous system and all of the other organs are at risk. How the Musculo-Skeletal System Keeps You Healthy: - Your bones make red blood cells, without red blood cells, oxygen cannot get throughout the body, and without oxygen you die. - Your muscles help your blood move throughout the body, they
also help your heart beat with cardiac muscles. To keep your muscles healthy you should exercising daily. Also, you should stretch before and after you exercise. Exercising can make your muscles strong. Doing this daily will ensure that your muscles stay that way. Stretching before and after you exercise will decrease your risk of getting injured during and after you exercise. Stretching will ensure you have optimal circulation of body fluids throughout your body and adequate flexibility of that muscle. Red Blood Cells are created here, in the bone marrow.
"How to Keep Your Bones Healthy." eHow. Web. 9 Mar. Citations To keep your bones healthy you should do things such as spend time outside in the sun and drink milk. Being outside in the sun allows your body to take in Vitamin D which helps your body absorb Calcium. Dairy products are a good source of Calcium. For example, yogurt and cheese. Milk is also a good source of Vitamin D. Keeping Your Bones Healthy: "Human Skeleton." Wikipedia. Web. 10 Mar. "Osteomyelitis." Wikipedia. Web. 11 Mar. Other Systems that Interect with the Musculo-Skeletal System: - The Cardiovascular System has smooth muscle in the veins, there is cardiac muscle in the heart and marrow in the bone produces red blood cells - The spinal cord is a part of the CNS (Central Nervous System) - There are smooth muscles throughout the Digestive System - The Repiratory system has smooth muscles in the diaphragm and lungs If the Musculo-Skeletal System Were To Shut Down: "Arthritis."
