Tendon

A tendon (or sinew) is a tough band of fibrous connective tissue that usually connects muscleo to bone and is capable of withstanding tension. Tendons are similar to ligaments and fasciae as they are all made of collagen except that ligaments join one bone to another bone, and fasciae connect muscles to other muscles. Tendons and muscles work together.
