A ligament is a band of strong tissues that hold joints in place. They are tough but flexible, much like ropes. Ligaments can be found all over the body, supporting the different parts that make up the skeleton and holding them together. They are able to do their job because they're made up of special cells called fibroblasts, which produce collagen fibers.

 

Ligaments allow for movement in your joints so you can move your muscles and use them without injuring other parts of your body. Fast-paced sports or activities like running require even more ligament support to avoid injury than other activities do because they put joints under more pressure than usual.
