What About Musculoskeletal System


“If you don’t take care of this the most magnificent machine that you will ever be given…
where are you going to live?”
Karyn Calabrese

Why do we care about the musculoskeletal system? In a word, it's pain. When anything goes wrong with the workings of our muscles, bones, joints and the connecting tissue, pain is the first indication. It can be excruciating and debilitating and the first thing we reach for is the pain pills. Here's the problem with that...some of them are dangerous when used for any length of time and we need to know what is dangerous and what is safe. Knowledge is power so the first logical step is to get acquainted with this vital system and understand how it works.

Every time you walk, settle into a chair, or hug your child, you're using your bones, muscles, and joints. Without these important body parts, we wouldn't be able to stand, walk, run, or even sit. Musculoskeletal system 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. The musculoskeletal system's primary functions include supporting the body, allowing motion, and protecting vital organs.
