Cartilage - allows bones to slide over one another, reduces friction, prevents damage, absorbs shock (i"d. Ligaments - connect bone to bone to stabilize joints and limit movement (ie. acl in knee) Tendons - connects muscles to bones (ie. biceps brachii tendon - biceps to head of humerous) Fascia - flat sheets that line and protect muscle fibres, attach muscle to bone, provide structure of nerves, blood vessels and lymphatics. Bursae - fluid filled sacs in areas of friction to cushion bones or ligaments that may rub (ie. acromion bursa in shoulder) Meniscus - cartilage disc between bones to absorb shock and cushion joints (ie. medial/lateral menisci of knee) Axial skeleton - skull, vertebrae, ribs, hyoid bone, sternum. Appendicular skeleton - clavicle, scapula, upper and lower extremities, pelvis. Compact bone - forms shaft and outer layer of skeleton and majority of bone mass. Cancellous/spongy bone - makes up bone volume in ends and center.
