These are the components of the muscularskeletal system. Breakdo wn Cartila ge Bones Ligame nts The tools we need to allow our bodies to move Muscles Explanatio n Cartilage is stiff yet flexible and is found between bones and joints and between the ribs and the breastbone (as indicates in the diagram). It also format ears, nose, and bronchial tubes, and forms discs between the bones of the spinal column Bones provide support and help to form the shape of the body. The place where bones meet is called a joint- e.g knee, elbow or finger and toe joints Ligaments occur between bones and joints and hold bones together within the joint. Ligaments are extremely strong Muscles allow us to move because they are able to contract (become shorter) and relax/expand (become longer. Your muscles attach to the bone with strong cords called tendons. You can feel some of the tendons in your body, for example behind your ankle (called Achilles' tendon) DID YOU KNOW? DID YOU KNOW? The health issues involving the muscularskeletal system include rickets: caused by lack of vitamin D, calcium or phosphate causing soft, bendable bonesArthritis: joints in the body become inflamed and swollen.Osteoporosis: tissues become thin,brittle and spongy
