The Ligament is a short band of tough fibrous connective tissue composed mainly of long, stringy collagen molecules. Ligaments connect all the bones to other bones in and around the joints.. Ligaments limit the amount of mobility of a joint, or prevent certain movements altogether.
The Ligaments are tough bands of tissue that will connect the bones in your body. There are four ligaments in the knee that are prone to injury: Anterior curiae ligament (ACL) is the most commonly injured knee ligament. The function of a ligament is to provide a passive limit to amount of movement between your bones.
Ligament injuries are common and also can occur at any joint in the body. The knee and ankle are particularly vulnerable but it is sport specific.
Ligaments are strained when the joint is stressed beyond its normal range. Common causes of a ligament injury include twisting or landing awkwardly.
It is the most common when ligaments around the particular joint are at full-stretch can cause it to tear away from the bone.
Ligament injuries are normally related to trauma that over stresses the ligament beyond its load capacity.
