The muscular system provides for movement in our body. Without muscles, our bones would not be able to move. Without muscles, many of our organs would not work either. Your heart would not be able to pump blood, and you would not be able to breathe. Read on to learn more about the muscular system, and what it does in your body.

There three types of muscles in the human body: skeletal muscle, smooth muscle and cardiac muscle. Skeletal muscles are attached to the skeleton bones, and provide movement of the body. Smooth muscle is found in our internal organs such as the digestive system, respiratory system, blood vessels, and bladder. Cardiac muscle is found only in the heart, and is responsible for the heart beating or pumping action.
