We are all aware of what our bodies are made up of. Muscles, tissues, blood flowing through blood vessels and nerves are what makes our body what it is. Internal organs follow a set of signals or instructions to the t and we work perfectly. However, all of this has an inner core which gives us the shape and structure that is seen outwardly. Yes, you got that right. It is our skeleton. A bag of bones, as referred to as jokingly sometimes, this intricate structure of bones make up our body structure. It gives the shape, though it is later determined more by the flesh we put on it by gaining weight by our food habits etc. Our bones are usually of a hardy stature but are affected often genetically or just naturally, due to age. A deficiency of calcium deposit on bones tends to give rise to the most common disease that is known as – Arthritis. It gives rise to swellings and pain in the joints of our body and can be really painful for some if not treated properly.
