Skeletal muscle are muscle that are connected to the skeleton.Because they control your skeletal muscle that is connected to your skeleton so it can move.

the skeletal system

The skeletal system includes all of the bones and joints in the body. Each bone is a complex living organ that is made up of many cells, protein fibers, and minerals. The skeleton acts as a scaffold by providing support and protection for the soft tissues that make up the rest of the body. The skeletal system also provides attachment points for muscles to allow movements at the joints. New blood cells are produced by the red bone marrow inside of our bones.

the function of the skeletal system

The adult human skeletal system consists of 206 bones, as well as a network of tendons, ligaments and cartilage that connects them. The skeletal system performs vital functions— support, movement, protection, blood cell production, calcium storage and endocrine regulation — that enable us to survive.

The Structure Of The Bone

Many bones have the same basic structure. There's a Thin tough membrane covers all the bone except the end. Small canals run through the compact bone carrying blood vessels and nerves from the bone's surface to the living cells within the bone.

how the skeletal system maintains homeostasis

Calcitriol regulates the levels of calcium and phosphorus in the blood and helps maintain a healthy skeletal system. Bone resorption by osteoclasts releases calcium into the bloodstream which helps regulate calcium homeostasis.
