Musculoskeletal System Of Human
Musculoskeletal system

A musculoskeletal system is an organ system that gives animals and humans the ability to move using the muscular and skeletal systems. The musculoskeletal system provides form, support, stability, and movement to the body.

It is made up of the body's bones the skeleton, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints, and other connective tissue that supports and binds tissues and organs together.
 
Skelatal

The Skeletal System serves many important functions; it provides the shape and form for our bodies in addition to supporting the body, protecting vital organs, allowing bodily movement, producing blood for the body, and storing minerals such as calcium and phosphorus.

The bones provide the stability to a body and muscles keep bones in place and also play a role in movement of the bones.

The bones are connected to other bones and muscle fibers via connective tissue such as tendons and ligaments.

To allow motion, different bones are connected by joints.

Cartilage prevents the bone ends from rubbing directly on to each other.

Humans are born with over 300 bones; however, many bones fuse together between birth and maturity. As a result an average adult skeleton consists of 206 bones.

Major function of sketletal systems are
- Skeletal system acts as a protective structure for vital organs for example the brain being protected by the skull and the lungs being protected by the rib cage.
-Two distinctions of bone marrow yellow and red are located in long bones. The yellow marrow has fatty connective tissue and is found in the marrow cavity. During starvation, the body uses the fat in yellow marrow for energy.The red marrow of some bones is an important site for blood cell production, approximately 2.6 million red blood cells per second in order to replace existing cells that have been destroyed by the liver.
-Bones is the storage of certain minerals. Calcium and phosphorus are among the main minerals being stored. The importance of this storage "device" helps to regulate mineral balance in the bloodstream. When the fluctuation of minerals is high, these minerals are stored in bone; when it is low it will be withdrawn from the bone.

Muscular

There are three types of muscles—smooth, cardiac, and skeletal.

- Smooth muscles are used to control the flow of substances within the lumens of hollow organs, and are not consciously controlled.
- Only skeletal and smooth muscles are part of the musculoskeletal system and only the skeletal muscles can move the body.Skeletal muscles are attached to bones and arranged in opposing groups around joints
- Cardiac muscles are found in the heart and are used only to circulate blood; like the smooth muscles, these muscles are not under conscious control.

Tendons
A tendon is a tough, flexible band of fibrous connective tissue that connects muscles to bones.As muscles contract, tendons transmit the forces to the relatively rigid bones, pulling on them and causing movement. Tendons can stretch substantially, allowing them to function as springs during locomotion, thereby saving energy.
 
Joints
Joints are structures that connect individual bones and may allow bones to move against each other to cause movement. There are two divisions of joints, diarthroses which allow extensive mobility between two or more articular heads, and false joints or synarthroses, joints that are immovable, that allow little or no movement and are predominantly fibrous.
 
Ligaments
A ligament is a small band of dense, white, fibrous elastic tissue. Ligaments connect the ends of bones together in order to form a joint. Most ligaments limit dislocation, or prevent certain movements that may cause breaks. Since they are only elastic they increasingly lengthen when under pressure.
