Description:

The Understanding the Physiology of the Musculoskeletal System learning program is designed as an introduction to the physiology of the system of bones, joints, and muscles that shape the human body and give it strength and flexibility. The program first explains how bones form and grow to build the skeleton. It also reviews how bones are maintained and repaired. It then reviews the functions and properties of muscles, including muscle growth and the dynamics that allow muscles to contract and perform work.

Upon completion of this learning program, you will be able to:

  • Explain the processes involved in bone formation.
  • Explain the processes involved in bone growth.
  • Describe bone remodeling.
  • Describe mineral homeostasis.
  • List the functions and properties of muscles.
  • Explain the processes involved in muscle growth.
  • Explain the processes involved in muscle regeneration.
  • Explain fiber dynamics.
  • Describe the neuromuscular junction.
