Smooth muscle are involuntary muscles that make up your organs like your stomach, esophagus or diaphragm. You cannot control these types of muscles by thinking about them. Your brain automatically controls the movement of these muscles.
Smooth muscles help you throw up when you are sick. They also move food through your digestive tract.
Skeletal muscles move your skeleton. They are striated which means they look striped. Skeletal muscles are voluntary muscles which means you can control their movement. These muscles work together with your skeleton to move your body. They allow you to turn your head, stand up, or kick a ball.
