Our skeletal system helps us in following ways:

  1. Skeletal system provides mechanical support to body.
  2. Bony cranium and vertebral column protect our central nervous system.
  3. Inside skeletal pieces, blood cells are formed by erythropoiesis which then enters circulation.

The skeletal system depends on:

  1. Muscular system for movement of bones.
  2. Blood vascular system for supply of nutrients, such as calcium which are important to maintain the tissue in healthy condition.
  3. Endocrine system because hormones like parathormone and calcitonin together determine amount of mineral calcium in skeletal pieces.
