Stages of Bone Development

Bones provide support and protection and produce blood cells. They begin forming during fetal growth and development through intramembranous and endochondial ossification. When a child reaches adulthood, the epiphyseal plates made of cartilage are replaced by bone. They continue to be remodeled throughout an individual’s life due to osteoblast and osteoclast. However, as you age your skeletal mass and density decreases.


The article clearly describes how the bone develops over a certain amount of time and gives us clear definitions to make sure we understand what is going on when the bone develops. This relates to what we learned in class because we just went over the bone development and bone loss. 02-03-2017 5:17pm
