The human musculoskeletal system comprises of a collection of bones, muscles, cartilage, tendons, joints, ligaments and connective tissue. The interaction between these components is what ultimately constructs the human musculoskeletal system, and allows the body to function as it does on a day to day basis. The musculoskeletal system creates a foundational framework that supports the body, allows it to move in different directions and helps protect vital organs in the body, from trauma and bruising. However, due to its size and the number of components, the musculoskeletal system becomes more susceptible to damage as time goes by.

One of the most common disorders affecting the musculoskeletal system is Arthritis. In fact, as of 2013, nearly 20% of the residents of the UAE were suffering from some form arthritis.
