Muscular Antagonism

Term Category: Anatomy

Muscular antagonism refers to the relationship between pairs of muscles that have opposing actions or functions. When one muscle group contracts, its antagonist relaxes to allow the desired movement to occur smoothly. This antagonistic relationship is crucial for balanced and coordinated movement in the body. Muscular antagonism helps maintain stability, control joint movements, and prevent excessive or uncontrolled actions. It ensures that muscles work together harmoniously, providing efficient and precise control over body movements.
