Abstract

The musculoskeletal system is dependent on numerous anatomical structures working in coordinated and synchronized patterns to generate joint movement. Structural deficits in this system can diminish proper musculoskeletal function and produce pain. A comprehensive understanding of these anatomical structures and their relation to one another is instrumental in the diagnosis of persons with musculoskeletal pain.
