What is the relationship between the skeletal System and the ligaments of the body?
Ligament is an elastic, fibrous, connective tissue. It helps in attaching a bone with another bone in movable (synovial) joint.
Ligaments are elastic while another fibrous connective tissue Tendon, joining bone with muscle, is nonelastic. When the muscle contracts, tendon pulls the bone at joint. Ligaments at joint allow the bone to move.
