Basic Anatomy

  • 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.

  • Anatomy of the Spine

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

  • Anatomy of the Shoulder

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

  • Anatomy of a Joint

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

  • Anatomy of the Male and Female Pelvis

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Anatomy of the Foot

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

  • 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.
