Tendon

A Tendon or Sinew is a tough band of fibrous connective tissue[?], attached on one end to a muscle and on the other to a bone. They are similar in everything except location to ligaments.

The Achilles tendon[?] is a particularly large tendon connecting the heel to the muscles of the calf. It is so named because the mythic hero Achilles could only be injured at this spot.
