The muscular system is made for movement. It
could be from something big like the muscles in
your legs as you walk or from the contraction of a
blood vessel in your brain. Without them, you
wouldn’t be able to move anything in your body.
There are just the three different types of tissues that
make up different organs. The heart is made up of many
tissues but one of the main tissues is the cardiac tissue
which is a muscular tissue and then there is the skeletal
tissue and smooth tissue. The skeletal tissue is connected
to the bone. It’s the only type of tissue you actually can
notice. The smooth muscle tissue is found in the digestive
system in the stomach and intestines, blood vessels,
bladder, airways and in the female uterus.
• Skeletal muscles: Are the muscles that you can see and notice. If
you see a body builder what you are looking at is there
skeletal muscle. Skeletal muscle is the 1 of the three muscles
that you can control. Skeletal muscles come in pairs and are
attached to the bone if you move the bone with one muscle the
other muscle has the job to move it back.
• Smooth muscles are mostly in your digestive system, blood
vessels, bladder, airways and, in the female uterus. Smooth
muscles can stretch for a long period of time. You do not have
the ability to tell your smooth muscles to contract or relax. The
nervous system does that automatically.
• Cardiac muscles are only found in the heart and have the
ability to stretch for long periods of time like the smooth
muscles and it can contract with the force of a skeletal
muscle. you can also not control the cardiac muscle. The
cardiac muscle is a very important muscle without it we
would die.
The muscular system is connected to the circulatory system because
the heart is mainly made of cardiac tissue and the heart is also a
main organ for the circulatory system. The heart is responsible for
pumping blood throughout the organism.
The muscular system is also connected to the skeletal system
because the skeletal tissue is attached to the bones in your body
which allows you to move your body. Skeletal tissue is a muscular
tissue.
Muscular Dystrophy
When your body cells lack a certain type of protein,
usually carried through family genes, your muscles
become weaker. Most people lose ability to walk or to
hold their head up. Treatments include physical therapy,
drug therapy, and corrective surgery. Although there is
no cure yet, research is still going on.
Cardiomyopathy (KAR-de-o-mi-OP-ah-thee)
Cardiomyopathy is a disease that occurs in the heart
muscle. The heart muscle because enlarged and thicker
or in some rare cases, the muscle tissue gets replaced
with scar tissue. Sometimes the cause of this is unknown
but sometimes things like pregnancy and too much use of
alcohol over time. Doctors usually make lifestyle changes
if not to serious but if it’s anything worse medication and
surgery is then used.
Your muscular system needs regular maintenance to remain
healthy and strong. Eating healthy foods help your muscles keep
enough nutrients and energy so they can produce fuels to function
properly and avoid tissue breakdown. Also regular physical
activity maintains and builds up you muscle mass and strength.
Physical Therapist
Physical therapists are people who help with
people of all ages, which have medical problems
or other health-related conditions that limit their
abilities to move their muscles and do activities in
their daily lives. The hospital setting is the most
common setting where physical therapists work,
but within the hospital there are special areas for
them to work.
Biomedical Engineers
Biomedical engineers apply technology to
healthcare. This includes researching, designing
and developing medical products. One of the
medical products they make is joint replacements
or robotic surgical instruments which all effect the
muscular system. Biomedical engineers work in
offices, laboratories, workshops, clinics and
hospitals.
• On average, about 40% of your body weight is in
muscles.
• Each muscle is hooked to at least two bones so when
the muscles contract it cause movement.
• Eye muscles move more than 100,000 times a day.
• You have over 30 facial muscles which create looks
like surprise, happiness, sadness and frowning.
• If you hear someone say that they ‘pulled’ a muscle,
they have torn a muscle. It’s the same thing when you
tear a ligament or break a bone.
