ligament

lig·a·ment

/ˈligəmənt/

Noun

Ligaments attach bones together by adhering to the processes. They are very elastic bands that allow for movement in joints like the elbow and knee. However, the movement is limited. Pushing a ligament beyond its capacity to stretch will result in a tear or a sprain injury.
