FUNCTION OF THE ORGAN IN THE MUSCULAR SYSTEM 
Bones: provides shape and support for the body, as well as protection for some organs. Bone also serves as a storage site for minerals and provides the medium marrow for the development and storage of blood cells.
Ligament: A ligament is a fibrous connective tissue that attaches bone to bone, and usually serves to hold structures together and keep them stable.
Tendons: cord of a strong connective tissue to a rope. They connect muscles to our bones and transmit force which the muscles exerts. They allow us movement in our limbs
Muscles: allow a person to move, speak, and chew. They control heartbeat, breathing, and digestion. Other seemingly unrelated functions, including temperature regulation and vision, also rely on the muscular system.
THREATS TO THE MUSCULAR SYSTEM

Tendinitis: is inflammation of the thick fibrous cords that attach muscle to bone. These cords are called tendons. The condition causes pain and tenderness just outside a joint. Tendinitis can occur in any tendon. But it's most common around shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees and heels
Sprain: is a stretching or tearing of ligaments — the tough bands of fibrous tissue that connect two bones together in your joints
