- 1. Organization of the Skeleton
- Axial Skeleton
- Appendicular Skeleton
Axial Skeleton is the blue Appendicular Skeleton is the purple 2. The Appendicular Skeleton
- The appendicular skeleton is composed of the:
- pectoral girdle
- upper extremities
- pelvic girdle
- lower extremities
3. The Pectoral Girdle
- Also called the shoulder girdle , thepectoral girdlecontainsfour(4) bones.It functions toanchor and support the upper extremitiesand serves as an
importantattachment site for a great number of muscles that help to move the arm . The bones of the pectoral girdle are as follows: 4.
- The Clavicles (2)
- Also known as the collarbones , these act as anterior braces or struts, helping to prevent dislocations of the shoulder.
Bones of the Pectoral Girdle 5.
- The Scapula(2)
- Also known as the shoulder blades, these contain the shallow sockets into which the head of the humerus fits.
Bones of the Pectoral Girdle 6. The Upper Extremities
- The upper extremities or upper appendages, and commonly, but inappropriately, called the arms, contain a total of sixty (60) bones from regions commonly called the upper arm, forearm, wrist, and hand.The bones of the upper extremities listed proximally to distally are as follows:

18. The Pelvic Girdle
- Thepelvic girdle , also called the pelvis , functions tosupport and protect the soft, vital organs of the abdominal cavity ,provide a stable support for the trunk of the body , and toprovide attachments for the lower extremities(the legs). The bones of the pelvic girdle are as follows:
- The Coxal Bones or Ossa Coxae
- Also commonly called the hipbones , the coxal bones each consist of three parts which become fused
Bones of the Pelvic Girdle in late adolescence to form a single bones. They articulate posteriorly with the sacrum and anteriorly to each other at the symphysis pubis joint. 20.
- The three subparts of the coxal bone which fuse in late adolescence are as follow:
- a. The Ilium
- b. The Ischium
- c. The Pubis
Bones of the Pelvic Girdle 21.
- The Sacrum
- Also a part of the vertebral column, it serves as aposterior anchor for the coxal bonesand asa solid, posterior wall for the pelvic girdle .
Bones of the Pelvic Girdle The Coccyx Also known as the tailbone . 22. The Lower Extremities
- The lower extremities or lower appendages, and commonly, but inappropriately, called the legs, contain a total of sixty (60) bones from regions commonly called the thigh, shin, ankle, and foot.The bones of the lower extremities listed proximally to distally are as follows:
