Muscle: Muscles are the powerhouse of the body. Muscles consist of muscle tissue made up of specialized cells called muscle fibers. Muscle tissue has the ability to contract, resulting in the contraction and movement of muscles. The contraction of muscles can be under voluntary or involuntary control, depending on their location and function. There are three types of muscles: skeletal muscle, cardiac muscle and smooth muscle.
Conditions that can afflict muscles include trauma, cancer, myopathy, atrophy, infectious myositis, paralysis, neuromuscular diseases, lacerations, contusions, myocarditis, myocardial infarction and cardiac arrhythmia.
