Skeletal muscles are connected to bones with tendons. When someone moves their hands or legs, the bones move. First, the skeletal muscles contract. This pulls the tendon to move the bones. These muscles are considered to have voluntary control. Sometimes, people will contract diseases that affect the skeletal muscles. One of these diseases is called myopathies. When someone contracts a myopathy, he or she will struggle with movement.
They might have trouble grabbing a glass off the counter. This is because the skeletal muscles might be struggling with contraction. When the skeletal muscle can’t contract, then the tendon then can’t move the bone. The tissue that connects the muscles is called fascia. There are also muscle fibres in the muscles.
