Tendons are dense fibrous connective tissue structures composed of collagen fibres that bind skeletal muscles to bones and enable movement. On the other hand, ligaments are similar dense fibrous connective tissues that connect bone to bone and help stabilize the joints. While tendons allow elasticity, ligaments allow stability and support.
Ligaments and tendons are prone to injury if overstretched. This affects the smooth movement of the joint and inflicts pain. When the anterior cruciate ligament that runs diagonally in the middle of the knee, gets damaged, anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction surgery is performed to treat the injury.
