Transcript of The Muscular System

the functions of the major parts of the muscular system Biceps a common injury is muscle tears Oblique Adbominis Sartorius Deltoid Orbicularis Oculi Sternomastoid Gastrocnemius fibromyalgia Pectoral Temporalis spinal muscal atrophy Gluteus Maximus Quadriceps Tibialis Rectus Abdominis Triceps Fun Facts There are muscles in the root of your hair that give you goosebumps. It takes 17 muscles to smile and 43 to frown. The hardest working muscle is in your eye. The biggest muscle is the glutemus maximus. tendonitis Neuromuscular Disease Spasticity Whenever you get goosebumps, it is due to tiny muscles present in the bottom of your hair. When your eyes twitch, it's caused by muscle spasms. Is when a tendon gets inflammed. It is painful and makes it hard to move. The major thing of fibromyalgia is pain.
The pain feels like it's in the joints although
it doesn't affect the joints. Involuntary movement of muscles.
Skeletal Muscle: Associated with the bones, and it makes your arms, legs,head, and other body parts move. Vocabulary: Smooth Muscle: Smooth muscles can contract without you actively causing them to. It's found near the digestive system. Cardiac Muscle: Found in the heart. It makes the heart beat. The Bicep's main function is to help bend the elbow. The main function of the Sartoius is flexing the leg at the knee joint. The tricep's first job is to extend the arm. The second job is to bring the arm down towards the body. To extend the knee and straighten the knee. Provides movement in the legs. To chew and open the jaw Helps your posture and helps you breath. It also helps keep your organs intact. To move the arm away from the body. Closes the eye lids. Serve to flex and rotate the head. how the muscular system interacts with other systems Supports your body so you can stand. Pectoral gastrocnemius Chest muscles that move the arms down toward your body or the movement of the arms to the sides moving to the front of your body. Muscles located in the stomach that assist with breathing and help you bend over or the side. Located in the back of the leg and it helps you point your toe by pulling on your ankle. One muscle in the pair bends part of the body. The other muscle straightens part of the body.

The following muscles (triceps and biceps) work together as one muscle is concentrated, and the other one is relaxed. As you move they switch jobs.
Triceps are contracted to straighten your arm. Biceps relax. How DO MUSCLES WORK IN PAIRS TO MOVE PARTS OF THE BODY? The system that interacts directly with the muscular system is the skeletal system. It provided the levers against which the muscles can pull and create movement.
How does The Respiratory System interact with the Muscular System?
It provides the oxygen for the muscles to work when they are doing aerobic respiration. Circulatory system
the circulatory system works closely with the muscular system because the heart is a muscle. The Muscular system Biceps Oblique abdominis sartorius deltoid orbicularis oculi sternomastoid gastrocnemius pectoral temporalis gluteus maximus quadriceps tibialis rectus abdominis triceps Diagram
