ligaments and tendons
fibrous connective tissue that holds joints together
The skeletal system is made up of bones, joints, and connective tissues.
All joints have connective tissues to connect the bones in the joint
Ligaments hold bone to bone in a movable joint. In contrast, tendons hold muscle to bone. Ligaments are made of dense fibrous connective tissue. Ligaments also hold our bones in place and support the organs.
Different types of joints are held together by different tissues types:Sutures and gomphoses are held together by dense fibrous connective tissue. Synchondroses are held together by hyaline cartilage.Symphyses are held together by fibrocartilage.Diarthroses or synovial joints, the most common type of joints, are held together by ligaments and joint capsules, which are made of dense fibrous connective tissue.
Connective tissues called tendons connect muscles to bones.
