Question:

Answer: The difference between a tendon and a ligament is that a tendon connects muscle to bone, while a ligament connects two bones. Tendons let your muscles move bones, whereas ligaments stabilize joints. Tendons are simply connective tissues that attach muscles to bone and help them move our joints when they contract. Tendons come in many shapes and sizes. While the most recognizable shape is the long thin kind (such as the Achilles tendon), they can also very thick, depending on the shape of the muscle and attachment of the bone.
