Main Parts & There Functions
How other body systems affect the skeletal System
There are 3 main parts to the skeletal system, the bones, tendons, muscles, joints, and cartilage.
Your bones help protect your inside organs and without your bones you would be a big mushy puddle of skin.. eww.
Your tendons help to connect your bones and muscles to one another.
Your muscles help move your bones/arms and legs back and forth, without your muscles you wouldn't even be able to walk!
Your joints are where two or more muscles meet, this is how you bend your arms and legs.
Your cartilage is in between your bones and joints to help keep your bones from rubbing together and causing injury.
The skeletal system affects the muscle system because without bones the muscles and tendons would have no place to attach to.
The integumentary system affects the skeletal system because the skin of this system helps cover up and protect the bones.
The skeletal system affects the digestive system because it helps all the organs be protected.
Diseases of the System
Osteoporosis is a prevalent disease of the skeletal system, particularly among the elderly, resulting in the loss of bone tissue.
While leukemia is a cancer that primarily affects the blood, the skeletal system is involved as the cancer starts in the marrow of the bone.
Bursitis is a disorder that causes pain in the body's joints. It most commonly affects the shoulder and hip joints.
