CHAPTER 9 Skeletal System

The bones and joints work together to maintain homeostasis in two main ways. One is by minimizing changes in the body's internal conditions; this is accomplished by providing support and protection from traumatic injury. The second way is by helping to restore errant conditions to proper levels. The skeletal system contributes to this goal by helping the muscles move, storing minerals and fat, and producing blood cells.
