hey everyone this is Ben with registered

are soaring calm and in this video I'm

going to show you how to learn the bones

of your body you'll have to learn your

bones in classes like anatomy and

physiology biology and other health

science classes and when you're born you

have 270 bones but by the time you're an

adult most of those bones will have

fused together leaving you with only 206

bones okay so for this video I'm going

to go over from head to toe all the

major bones and what I would recommend

is that you print out a diagram we'll

try to have one on our website and also

practice some quizzes online and just

keep filling out that diagram over and

over until you get these bones and I'll

try to give you a little ways to

remember these as I go along and then

I'll cover those and then in future

videos I'll go through and we'll get a

little more specific about some of these

bones in your face and in your hand and

so forth because each of those have

their own little section their own

little names but for this video we'll

just give a quick overview and I have my

good friend here skinny bones Jones he's

gonna help me out he is so skinny he has

to run around the shower just to get wet

but he's a great guy to talk to and he

has a really open mind so he's going to

help us out so let's get started all

right first up we have the skull and the

top part of the skull here is called

your cranium and the easy way to

remember that is that your cranium

sounds like brain cranium brain ium and

that's how you can remember that there's

also a board game called cranium where

you have to use your brain so that's how

you remember that next you have your

jawbone this is called your mandible and

the way to remember that is to say man I

talk a lot or you can remember that

masticate which is chewing my mmmm-mmm

you use your mandible to masticate so

that's the way remember that you also

have three bones in your ears and those

are called the hammer anvil and stirrup

that's the sort of slang term form their

official name is the incus malleus and

state B's so that's your ear bones we

won't get into that in this video I'll

touch on that when we talk about the

cranial bones

okay now let's keep moving forward okay

next up we have right at the top right

here this is called your clavicle bone

and that's your collarbone and the best

way to remember that is your clavicle

collar it sounds the same both start

with C so when you're going to pop your

collar on your clavicle okay

next you have your sternum that is the

center bone right there on your chest

all your ribs and the way to remember

that's your sternum is that it's shaped

exactly like a necktie

so the necktie area or the necktie

looking bone is the center of your chest

the sternum so Center sternum necktie

looking bone as a way to remember that

your sternum is divided into three

sections by the way the top part is

called the manubrium the center part is

called the body and then this little tip

is called the xiphoid process and so you

usually don't have to know all three

parts for just the basic bone overview

but that's the sternum next you have

your ribs of course and we all know what

the ribs are so we won't go into that

for this video now let's turn our little

volunteer skinny bones Jones around here

these two bones on the back these are

called the scapula

those are your little shoulder blade

bones and the way to remember that is

that SCAP kind of sounds like back so

scapula back

SCAP back that's how you remember those

you also have coming down from your

skull here your vertebrae and your

vertebrae is broken into three major

sections at the very top these bones up

here these are called your cervical

vertebrae then in the middle you have

your thoracic vertebrae and just

remember your chest area is called your

thorax so that's the thoracic vertebrae

area and then in the very lower part you

have your lumbar vertebrae and the way

to remember that is if you ever see an

advertisement for like a couch or a

chair or something will say has

excellent lumbar support

well that's because that area in your

spine kind of curves out and you need

something there to kind of cushion and

support that so that's the lumbar area

of your vertebrae then at the very

bottom down here you have your sacrum

and the way to remember this bottom area

is that the sacrum is kind of a sacred

area because it's your backside area and

so that's where that's located and then

at the very bottom you have your coccyx

bone and that is your tailbone down

there so the very last bone down there

is your coccyx bone then you have your

sacrum and then your lumbar part of your

vertebra thoracic and then at the very

top your cervical right where the

clavicle is located okay now let's talk

about these arm bones the very top of

your bone of your arm is your Hugh

that's is really long a sort of skinny

bone and the way to remember that is

that if you ever hit this bone and I

have it is anything but funny anything

but humorous

so that's your humerus bone it's kind of

a funny named bone then for these two

bones on your arm at the lower part of

your arm you have here your radius

that's the top bone and I'll show you

online your radius bone and Llorona and

the way you can remember between those

two is that your ulna when you hold your

thumb up in there like this Llorona is

under so ona under and then the top of

the radius and the radius when you throw

a ball for example it kind of makes a

radius so that's how you can remember

that that's that part of your arm all

right now we have the hand bones and in

your hand bones you have a lot of

different bones we'll go over those in a

different video but these this

collection of small bones right in this

area right at the bottom right here

those are called your carpals and the

way you can remember that is that you

use your carpals to drive a car so your

carpals are for driving the car next you

have these skinny bones coming out from

those and those are your maida carpals

and that prefix maida just means to

extend out from or to come out from so

you have your carpals and your maida

carpals and then for the fingers you

have those are all called your phalanges

so your fingers fingers and phalanges

sound the same that's how you can

remember those okay next we have the

pelvis bone and the pelvic girdle and

the way you could remember that this is

your pelvis is that it's just simply

your hip bone and Elvis Presley used to

shake his hips pelvis and Elvis sound

the same signal Dogu and back in the day

they would not even film Elvis Presley

from the waist down because he would

shake his hips and I thought that was

provocative things have changed quite a

bit since then as you can tell but this

is your pelvis I just remember pelvis

Elvis next it's very top bone of your

leg this is called

your femur bone and it's a really long

bone just like the top of your arm was

that long humerus bone this is your

femur bone and the way you can remember

the femur bone is when a female wears a

dress it's probably going to cover most

of her femur bone so that's how you can

remember that

okay now down here we have the patella

bone that comes right out from the femur

that's your little kneecap bone and then

we have these two bones of the lower leg

now the way that you can remember this

this one right here is called the tibia

and that is the really long bone and

this little smaller one off to the side

here is called your fibula so you have

your tibia and your fibula and the way I

would remember the difference between

these bones is that you tell a little

fib that's what you'll do that's what

people will do sometimes right they'll

tell a little fib

so the fibia is smaller than the big

tibia you because you tell a little fib

now for your foot bone here just like

the hand bones these are called

your tarsals remember the hand bones

were called your carpals and you're made

of carpals well these are called your

tarsal and you're made of tarsals and

the way to remember this is you're

tarsals are located where your toes are

so tarsals are where your toes are and

again the tarsal part is the small

collection of bones and then the

metatarsals are the longer bones that

come out and then your little toes here

those are called your phalanges just

like your fingers or clawed your

phalanges so fingers and toes are

phalanges okay so that's how you can

remember the bones of the body and

that's just a brief overview and again

we'll make some additional videos and

talk about some of these individual

bones that give you some facts about

those so thank you so much for watching
