Physiology -Notes- Bone Growth

Bone Growth

  • Bones grow from the epiphyseal plate during infancy and youth
  • Facial bones continue to grow until your demise
  • Replacement of cartilage cells by bone cells only on the sides of the diaphysis
  • Controlled by sex & growth hormones
  • Bone growth is completed at 25 years in males and 19 years in females

~3 Different Zones~

1.) Growth Zone: cartilage undergoes mitosis, push up on epiphyseal plate

2.) Transformation Zone: older cells begin to break down (hypertrophy) and enlarge

-These cells begin to calcify

-Cartilage turned into bone

3.) Osteogenic Zone: formation of medullary cavity

~Growth is Dependent on 4 Factors~

1.) Adequate Minerals: Ca2+, B, Mn

2.) Hormones: thyroid, growth, sex, parathyroid, calcitonin

3.) Vitamins: A, B12, C, D

4.) Exercise: weight bearing stress

  1. When he gets to highest point and how high he is.

  1. When he hit's the ground, and how fast he's going when he gets there.

  1. How high up he is when he's launched, and with what velocity he is launched.
