Basic Anatomy

  1. Anatomy of a Joint

    Joints are the areas where two or more bones meet. Most joints are mobile, allowing the bones to move.

  2. Anatomy of the Bone

    A typical bone in your body contains three types of tissue—a hard outer tissue, a sponge-like inner tissue, and smooth tissue at the ends.

  3. Anatomy of the Elbow

    The elbow is a hinge joint between the humerus bone in the upper arm and the radius and ulnar bones in the lower arm.

  4. Anatomy of the Foot

    Your feet are susceptible to many stresses. Foot pain and problems can cause pain, inflammation, or injury.

  5. Anatomy of the Hand

    Each of your hands has three types of bones: phalanges in your fingers; metacarpals in your mid-hand, and carpals in your wrist.

  6. Anatomy of the Knee

    The knee is a vulnerable joint that bears a lot of stress from everyday activities such as lifting and from high-impact activities such as jogging.

  7. Anatomy of the Male and Female Pelvis

    The pelvis is a basin-shaped structure that supports the spinal column and protects the abdominal organs.

  8. Anatomy of the Shoulder

    The shoulder is a complex joint with several layers, including bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles.

  9. Anatomy of the Spine

    Your backbone, also called the vertebral column, is made up of 33 vertebrae separated by spongy disks.
