Babies have more bones than adult humans. A newborn baby has about 70 bones more. As the baby grows some of these bones, such as the wrist and ankle, combine leaving only 206 bones in the adult body. Even though human

bones appear to be quite strong they can break or dislocate. A dislocation occurs when a bone is pushed out of its socket by a sudden pressure such as a fall. Actual breaks in the bone can be quite serious and can take from a month to six months to heal, depending on which bone it is.
