Tendons and ligaments are dense fibrous connective tissue structures composed of collagen fibres. Tendons connect skeletal muscles to bones and enable movement whereas ligaments connect bone to bone and help to stabilize the joints.
Collagen fibres in a tendon are parallel to allow elasticity while collagen fibres in a ligament are in a crossed pattern to allow stability and support.
Tendons and ligaments are prone to injury if overstretched. The joints of the knees, elbows, ankles and shoulders are most commonly affected. It is common for these injuries to occur while playing sports and is thus commonly seen in players and athletes.
