The musculoskeletalsystem is the integration of the skeletal and muscular systems. Along with theskeleton and muscles there are many sub systems, including joints, cartilage,tendons, ligaments and connective tissue. In conjunction with the nervoussystem the musculoskeletal system is responsible for maintaining posture andcarry out voluntary movements through the interaction of the bones, joints,muscles, tendons and ligaments.

The musculoskeletal system is part of several essential functions of the human body, including:

·     Support of the structural frame work of the  body.
·     Body movement and stability.
·     Production of red and white blood cells and platelets.
·     Storage of minerals, fats and maintaining mineral homeostasis.
·     Body temperature regulation.
