The Muscular Syestem

By Abdul Adewale

How it Works

The muscular system is responsible for the movement of the human body. Attached to the bones of the skeletal system are about 700 named muscles that make up roughly half of a person’s body weight. Each of these muscles is a discrete organ constructed of skeletal muscle tissue, blood vessels, tendons, and nerves. Muscle tissue is also found inside of the heart, digestive organs, and blood vessels.

How it Affects our Life

Every thing you do that involves movement is all because of the muscular system. Riding a bike involves the muscular system. The muscular systems main function is to help the body move. Without the muscular system you will not be able to move

Common diseases

Emery-Dreifuss or [EDMD]

Characteristics:Weakness and wasting of shoulder, upper arm and shin muscles. Joint deformities are common, and heart complications can be serious.

Healthy muscles let you move freely and keep your body strong. They help you to enjoy playing sports, dancing, walking the dog, swimming, and other fun activities. And they help you do those other (not so fun) things that you have to do, like making the bed, vacuuming the carpet, or mowing the lawn.

Strong muscles also help to keep your joints in good shape. If the muscles around your knee, for example, get weak, you may be more likely to injure that knee. Strong muscles also help you keep your balance, so you are less likely to slip or fall.

And remember—the activities that make your skeletal muscles strong will also help to keep your heart muscle strong!
