Human Bone Diseases And Abnormal Conditions

Introduction

Human body is comprised of a network of bones which is called a skeleton. This skeleton allows the bones to meet at particular locations in a body to form different joints and perform various essential functions. Bones form the shape of the body and keep it moving in right order. Further bones absorb and transmit necessary minerals to all over the body e.g. sodium, phosphorus, oxygen, calcium along with vitamins and proteins. The most important ingredient of body i.e. red blood cells also depend upon the bones for their proper production and spread to entire body. Although bones provide support to the entire body but at the same time , they are prone to various conditions and diseases that might cause severe physical disorders.

The word “Ex” derived from exterior or outside, and “ostosis” indicates the abnormal bones condition. Hence it is the disease in which growth tends to occur outside the bones. This leads towards the abnormal formation of joints and improper shaping of the body. This condition most of the time happens as a result of genetic disorder or being inherited from ancestors.
