Garden Area: Musculoskeletal

The musculoskeletal system consists of bones, cartilage, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Primary functions of the system include support of the body, provision of motion, and protection of vital organs. Problems arise when bones break, muscles weaken, and joints, as well as tendons, ligaments, and cartilage, are damaged by injury or disease.
