206 bones, 640 muscles, over 200 joints, over 4000 tendons, approximately 160 bursae and 900 ligaments is what our musculoskeletal system is made up of. Our bones form the skeletal framework of our body. Our muscles help our bones to help us sit, stand, walk and run. The bursae (fluid sac between the muscles and bones that forms in areas of friction) in our body help to facilitate the various movements at the joints minimizing friction. The tendons (a fibrous band of tissue connecting muscle with bone) help to transmit the force generated during movement from the muscles to the bones. The ligaments (a fibrous band of tissue connecting bones) seal the joint space and provide passive stability.
The system as a whole gives form, stability and movement to the human body. And,we are always striving to offer you the most comprehensive range of musculoskeletal care and expertise.
