THE MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM

These two are key systems that are critical in our body. They can be broken down to 9 different parts

Musculoskeletal system

The body system that provides support, stability, shape, and movement to the body. It is supported to by the following

Joint
The point at which two (or more) bones meet.

Cartilage
Soft connective tissue found between joints

Ligaments
Connective tissue that attaches bone to bone at a joint

Tendons
Connective tissue that attaches muscle to bone

Voluntary muscle
Muscle that can be consciously controlled

Involuntary muscle
Muscle that is controlled by the autonomic nervous system (not consciously controlled)

Striated muscle
Muscle tissue that has a striped appearance due to its fiber composition

THE MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM

In the musculoskeletal system, the muscular and skeletal systems work together to support and move the body.
The bones of the skeletal system serve to protect the body’s organs, support the weight of the body, and give the body shape. The muscles of the muscular system attach to these bones, pulling on them to allow for movement of the body

Our skeleton performs several major functions. It protects the internal organs, supports and gives shape to the body and allows for movement. It is the site of blood cell production which occurs in the marrow of some bones.

JOINTS, CARTILAGE, LIGAMENTS, AND TENDONS

The musculoskeletal system also contains connective structures and tissues that support the body and enables movement

MUSCLES
The body contains three types of muscle tissue:
(A) Skeletal muscles
(B) Smooth muscles
(C) Cardiac muscles.

Comparison of the three types of muscles – skeletal, smooth, and cardiac muscles

Skeletal muscles are voluntary and striated. These are the muscles that attach to bones and control conscious movement.
Smooth muscles are involuntary and non-striated. They are found in the hollow organs of the body, such as the stomach, intestines, and around blood vessels.

Cardiac muscles are involuntary and striated. They are found only in the heart and are specialized to help pump blood throughout the body.

These are the major muscles in the body but are broken to over 600 different muscles. They give our body shape and appearance. We could not be wearing clothes if we did not have muscles. We exercise to build muscles. It is muscles that make us strong to do manual work.

We will explore the diseases associated with skeleton and muscles in later articles
