Everything You'll Have Covered

What are the functions of the musculoskeletal system?

~ The musculoskeletal system lends our bodies their shape, posture, and support, and allows us to move.

How can the musculoskeletal system be damaged?

~ The musculoskeletal system can be damaged by sudden impacts or the twisting of limbs and joints.

How can broken bones be treated?

~ Broken bones can be treated through realigning and immobilizing them with a plaster cast, joining them with platinum pins and plates, or grafting via tissue engineering.

What are prosthetics and how do they help people with musculoskeletal disabilities?

~ Prosthetics are artificial limbs. Prosthetics can help to improve the quality of life for those with musculoskeletal disabilities.
