We are composed of one skeleton that can be divided into two major regions, the axial and appendicular skeleton. The axial skeleton makes up our central axis and consists of the following bones: skull, vertebrae, ribs and sternum.

The appendicular skeleton consists of the limbs and girdles. The girdles are the attachment points for the limbs. The pelvic girdle is the attachment point for our thigh bone (femur). The pectoral girdle serves as the attachment point for our upper arm (humerus).

The vertebrae in the neck are part of the axial skeleton.
