Musculoskeletal System

Combining two major body systems (the muscular and skeletal systems), the musculoskeletal system includes all the bones, joints, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and muscles in the body. The skeleton provides stability and a structural frame for muscles and tissues to attach to. Bones are the site of blood cell production and mineral storage. They also provide protection to vital internal organs. A ligament is a type of connective tissue that fastens bones together, forming a joint, while a tendon attaches muscle to bone. Cartilage acts as a protective cushion between bones to keep them from rubbing against one another. Muscles contract and relax, making movement of the skeleton possible. To fortify your muscles and bones for a lifetime of use, it’s essential to adopt healthy habits and to exercise regularly.
