- *Formed of Connective Tissue(2nd strongest)(1st strongest is enamel).
- -can regenerate it self(fx).
- -6-8 weeks to heal depending on the type of patient, Fx and bone affected.
- *Compact bone(bone density) peak bone mass is at age 30 yrs.
- -hemopoetic(forms blood cells).

- -living structure(organ).
- *Smooth, rubbery, blue-white connective tissue(2nd hardest).
- *Acts as a shock absorber between the bones(shoulder, elbow,wrist).

end of the bone located closest to the midline.
end of the bone located furthest away from the midline.

- location: red bone marrow.
- Lighter and less strong then compact bone.
Yellow Bone Marrow
- fat storage, composed of fat cells.
- located in Medullary Cavity.
- *Ball and socket joints(hip and shoulders).
- -ROM is greater.
- *Hinge joints(knee, elbow).
- -ROM is limited.
Joint (articulations) are connections between bones.
- Suture-immovable joint allows for growth(25yrs).
- Fontanelles- newborn soft spot of head or brain(1st yr of growth).
Diffrence between fontanelles and sutures?
child matures the sutures (no movement)close together and the fontanelles(flexable) harden.
- 1st 7 pairs are true ribs(14).
- 2nd 3 pairs are false ribs(6).

- capable of supporting multiple times a person's body weight.
- a opening in a bone through which blood vessels,nerves, ligaments pass(plural, foramina).
- example the spinal cord passes thru foramen magnum of the occipital bone.
shorter bone of the forarm(located on the thumb side).
Bones of the arm
- humerus (bone of upper arm).
- radius(short bone of forarm, thumb side).
- ulna (longer bone of the forarm articulates with the humerus to form the elbow joint; fifth digit side).
- smallest bones.
- six tiny bones in middle ear.

rheumatoid arthritis cause? (genetics)
- immune system attacts the synovium, the lining of the membranes that surround the joints.
- imflammtion thickens the synovium, invade and destroy the cartilage and bone within the joint.
