This book looks at the muscles, bones, and joints that make up the musculoskeletal system. We look at how this system supports and protects the human body and allows it to move around. We will also examine the composition and workings of bones, muscles, and tendons and consider the problems that can occur when the musculoskeletal system gets too much, or too little, activity.
