connective tissue that attaches bones to one another.
Bands of fibrous tissue connecting bones or cartilages that support and strengthen joints. Most ligaments are deemed to be unyielding, yet they are adaptable enough to permit movement at the joints. When overly stressed, however, rather than stretch, they will tear. Usually, ligaments impede unreasonable motion, being strong enough and having a lot of sensory nerves that discourage people from greatly straining or overstretching them.
Connective tissue with the greatest amount of elasticity.
Bands of fibrous tissue that connect bones or cartilage serving to support and strengthen the joints. The spine has ligaments surrounding it on all sides.
These are tough bandlike structures with slightly elastic properties which help to hold bones together at joints.
Structures that connect all the vertebrae to one another so that the bones of the spine can remain properly aligned and move in a coordinated fashion.
Strong. fibrous bands connecting bone to bone.
Connect bone to bone and provides structural Ligaments are composed of fibrous connective tissues made up of densely packed collagen fibers and when injured they can take a long time to heal because their blood supply is limited.
A band of fibrous connective tissue that connects bones to bones and supports joints
the tough, fibrous tissues that link bones to one another.
Strong cords of tissue that connect the bones in your joints.
Fibrous, slightly elastic tissue which binds the bones together and prevents excessive movement of the joint.
Bands of tissue that can stretch and support other parts of the body.
blend of fibrous tissue that attaches bone to bone.
The banded cord-like tissue that connect the bones.
Stretchy bands of cordlike tissues that connect bone to bone.
Bands of connective tissue uniting two bones. They help stabilise joints, and are usually unstretchable.
Strong fibrous cords which hold bones and joints together and also support the organs.
These are bands of fibrous tissue that bind a joint and control its range of movement.
Strong fibrous bands comprised of collagen tissue which link bones together and provide stability to joints. When ligaments are injured it is referred to as a ‘sprain'.
A band of tissue linking two bones in a joint.
Tissue connecting bones, especially at joints.
A band of tissue that can stretch and that supports other parts of the body.
Fibrous structures that connect bones to bones, providing support while allowing flexibility and movement.
Bands of cordlike tissue that connect bone to bone.
Dense parallel bundles of connective tissue that strengthen joints and hold the bones in place.
body tissue that connects the bones and keeps joints stable.
Straps that fasten bones to each other.
Bands of tissue connecting bones to bones or holding organs in place.
tough bands of connective tissue that bind one bone to another. Ligaments support the spine and also help prevent you from making excessive movement that may be damaging.
Strong, flexible, bands that connect bones to each other.
tough, elastic bands of connective tissue around a joint.
Are fibrous connective tissue bands that join the articulating ends of bones.
connect the bones and keep joints stable.
Fibres that connect bone to bone.
Elastic fibers that bind joints together and connect bones and cartilage.
bands of fibrous tissue that connect two or more bones
Cordlike Tissues that connect the bones within or around a joint; if overstretched, they may be a source of pain.
Bands of tough, fibrous supporting tissue that strengthen joints. Ligaments are important in supporting the bones in the spinal column.
these fasten bones to one another. They are strong, ropelike fibers or straps that wrap around joints and help hold bones together. Lisfranc fracture
Fibrous bands of dense collagen bundles attached to the end of bones; connect one bone to another bone.
Tissues connecting bones and keep them stable.
Bands of fibrous tissue which hold the vertebrae in place. They can be stretched by force and allow the vertebrae to slip out of place, causing injury to the cord.
a white, shiny, flexible band of fibrous tissue that binds joints together and connects various bones and cartilage.
The tough bands of fleshy tissue that hold bones together.
