What is a tendon?

Steindlers Answer | What is a tendon?

A tendon is a band of tissue that connects muscle to bone. It primarily allows for the transmission of muscle strength to the bones and joints, as well as the contraction of muscles to complete movements.  There are many different types of tendons throughout the body, each corresponding with a morphology of muscle and specific function.
