The human skeleton can be broken up into two separate categories: the axial skeleton and the appendicular skeleton.[1] The appendicular skeleton consists of 126 bones of the limbs, the pelvic girdle and the shoulder girdle.[2] The word appendicular refers to an appendage or anything attached to a major part of the body, such as the upper and lower extremities.
