Compact bone tissue forms all the visible outer surface of the bone and can vary from a paper-thin covering to a thick wall of bone. Trabecular bone tissue occupies the core of the bone beneath the compact bone. Areas of compact bone covered by articular cartilage form smooth subchondral compact bone surfaces. These subchondral bone surfaces mark the joint surfaces of bones.

This strong, flexible column not only forms the central support axis of the body from which the limbs are suspended, but is also capable of a varied range of joint movements that are essential to our daily functions. indd Page 34 15/03/11 8:42 PM user-F391 /Users/user-F391/Desktop Axial Skeleton The axial skeleton is clearly depicted in the photos below.
