Bones come together forming joints. Joints make possible the degree and direction of motion. Joints also provide stability and help to prevent damage to bones from constant use.

Muscles are comprised of bundles of fibers and assist with posture and movement. Skeletal muscles are attached to bones and are arranged in opposing groups surrounding the joints.

Several disorders are associated with joints and muscles. Some of these disorders include, but are not limited to, myositis, rhabdomyolysis, arthritis, hip degeneration, and fibromyalgia.

Recently, the Bayer Pharmaceutical company removed its popular cholesterol lowering drug Baycol from the market after reports that at least 40 people have died after developing myositis and rhabdomyolysis caused by the drug.
