What do tendons do?



  1. 0 Votes

    Tendons connect muscles to bones.  This connection helps give stability to the system, and are also known to reduce the amount of energy needed to perform certain tasks.  For example, if you fully extend your fingers and then relax your hand, your fingers will automatically start to curl.  This is your tendons acting like springs, returning your body to a state of rest.

    Tendons are a kind of soft tissue that connect your muscles to your bones, not to be confused with ligaments that connect bone to bone.  Tendons are mostly made of collagen.  

    Tendons transfer force from your muscles to your bones.  This makes movement in our joints possible; if our bones were not connected to our muscles, our muscles would move and contract but we would still be unable to move our bodies.
