Your body was made to move. But sometimes, for any number of reasons, certain movements are hindered by things that happen naturally, if not by sheer accident. When they do, we’re here to help keep you moving, the way nature intended.
Your Skeletal System serves many important functions. It provides the shape and form for our bodies. It also supports, protects, and allows body movement, as well as producing blood and storing minerals. There are 206 bones that form the framework to which the softer tissues and organs of the body are attached.
Bodily movement is carried out by the interaction of the muscular and skeletal systems. For this reason, they are often grouped together as the musculo-skeletal system. Muscles are connected to bones by tendons. Ligaments connect the bones to each other. Joints are where bones meet one another. Muscles that cause movement of a joint are connected to two different bones and contract to pull them together.
