Massage & the Musculoskeletal System

The primary purpose of the musculoskeletal system is to protect,  stabilize and mobilize the body. It is made up of the following tissues:

  • Muscle (movement)
  • Tendon (connects muscle to bone)
  • Ligament (connects bone to bone)
  • Bone (supports, protects, and gives form)
  • Joint (movement)

Most common causes of muscle pain:

  • Injury or trauma
  • Overuse (using a muscle too much, too soon, too often)
  • Tension or stress
