206 bones form the skeletal framework of our body. 640 muscles help our bones to help us sit, stand, walk and run. 160 bursae (fluid sac between the muscles and bones that forms in areas of friction) in our body help to facilitate the various movements at the joints minimizing friction. 4000 tendons (a fibrous band of tissue connecting muscle with bone) help to transmit the force generated during movement from the muscles to the bones. 900 ligaments (a fibrous band of tissue connecting bones) seal the joint space and provide passive stability.
The system as a whole gives form, stability and movement to the human body. And,we are always striving to offer you the most comprehensive range of musculoskeletal care and expertise.
