Expert Answer:


  • A ligament is a connective tissue which consists of very strong and elastic bands of tissue. It contains a very small amount of matrix
  • Although ligaments are slightly stretchy, they are arranged in crossing patterns to prevent the joint from becoming loose.
  • Ligaments hold two or more bones together at joints. They control the motion of a joint, and in some cases, restrict the motion of a joint.
