Tendon Poem

Muscles moving body’s bone,
But muscles never work alone,
Tendons tend to help them out,
Or else we couldn’t move about...
muscle and bone
Connective tissue,
Works for free,
Never asks us for a fee...
dollar bill
Connects our muscle to our bone,
Because bones ain't movin',
On their own!
Tendons, muscles,
Your bones too...
3 body parts,
That help move you!!!

What is a Tendon?
Tendons are the tissues that connect muscle to bone. Similar to ligaments (which connect bones to bones), they are fibrous and strong.
The Achilles tendon, which connects the muscles of the calf to the heel bone, is the thickest and strongest tendon in the body. It’s about 6 inches (15 centimeters long).

Inflammation of tendons is a common ailement (especially for athletes in sports that require repetitive movements) and is called Tendinitis.
