Lakeshore Physical Therapy

Tendon vs. Ligament?

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a tendon and ligament?

A tendon is fibrous connective tissue, which attaches muscle to bone. Tendons allow for movement between the muscle and bone. The healing process for a torn tendon is a long process that requires adequate medical attention. People with a torn tendon will feel severe pain, swelling, and burning local to the injury site. The strongest tendon in the body is the Achilles tendon, which connects the calf muscle to the heel bone, otherwise known as the calcaneus. A tendon tear usually occurs during a quick dynamic movement, however tendonitis is frequently seen with repetitive activity.

A ligament is fibrous connective tissue, which attaches bone to bone. Ligaments help to keep a structure stable. Injuries to ligaments most frequently occur during athletic activity. One of the most common ligament injuries is the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). If you tear a ligament, medical attention is necessary to determine if the ligament is fully or partially torn and to help guide your further plan of care. For other questions on tendons or ligaments, please contact us at Lakeshore Physical Therapy or stop by one of our clinics located within Lakeshore Sport & Fitness.
