    Micro-fracture consolidation can be treated with bone remodeling, and the adaptation of skeleton is applied to “calcium homeostasis” and to mechanical use. The bone remodeling involves the bone resorption regarding to osteoclasts and bone formation relating to osteoblasts. Regular bone-related diseases including “bone-metastasized cancers”, Paget’s disease, multiple myeloma, and osteoporosis are caused by the disproportion between the resorption and formation processes. The increased deterioration of health and mortality rate results in concerns regarding to knowledge enhancement on bone remodeling process.

No symptoms can be identified until a fracture happens. As we get older the minerals in our bones become less and less making them weaker and more brittle. When our bones become brittle they do not absorb as much stress and can cause them to break. As we age, our…

    Osteogenesis and the stages of bone development The early stages of bone development. Osteogenesis, also known as ossification, is the process in which bone forms. In the early stages, the ‘skeleton’ is made up of loose fibrous connective tissue membranes and hyaline cartilage, and are already in the shape of bones, these are the site where ossification will begin. This provides the foundation for subsequent ossification, starting in the 6th or 7th week of embryonic development. They will…

    • 2 Pages

    No human could function without the osteoblast cell. The responsibilities of the osteoblast include both the mineralization and synthesis of bone. The large cell carries out these jobs throughout the first formation of the bone and then later the remodeling of bone. Osteoblasts have one nucleus and works in teams to build bones and can be found either on the top or next to bone. Out of all three bone forming cell types, osteoblasts are the ones that produce the organic material that makes up…
