Postural/Skeletal movement, maintain posture, protect and support other soft tissue, control openings into the body, maintain body temperature, store nutrients
These are the 6 functions of skeletal muscle.
this function of the skeletal muscle controls contracting pulls on tendons, which inturn moves the bone.
this function of skeletal muscle provides constant tension in resting muscles. This maintains the body position, whether we are sitting or standing.
Protect and Support other Soft Tissue
this function of skeletal muscle supports the weight of the visceral organs and shields them from injury.
Controls openings into the Body
this function of the skeletal muscle provides circular muscle sphincters. This controls the openings to the urinary and digestive system.
Maintain body temperature
This function of the skeletal muscle states that contracting muscles require a lot of energy. Thus, they produce a large amount of heat
Organization of Skeletal Muscle
3 layers of Connective Tissue that support each muscle and compression of the deep fascia
layer that contains elastic connective tissue that surrounds each muscle fiber, a muscle fiber, capillaries, neurons, and satellite cells.
this layer surrounds many muscle fibers and bundles then into fascicles bundle of muscle fibers
