Movements are a notable feature of a living being. Both plants and animals show a wide range of movements. From one-celled organisms like an amoeba, protozoa, Celia, flagella, tentacles to multiple celled organisms show signs of movement. Complex organisms like human beings or mammals/animals can move from one place to another which is known as locomotion. Walking, coordination, ascending, hovering, swimming are all forms of locomotory movements. Hydra uses its tentacles for catching its prey and uses them for locomotion as well. Human beings use their protuberance for changes in body postures and locomotion as well. Locomotion is generally for the search of sustenance, shelter, companion, suitable breeding grounds, favorable climatic conditions or to escape from enemies/predators. In this topic, we will discuss in detail the types of Muscles, skeletal systems, joints, and disorders that constitute our human body and are responsible for movements and locomotion.
