How is muscle connected to the skeleton?


Answer by  spaffman10000 (469)

Muscle can be attached to the skeleton either directly (where the muscle tissue is directly attached to rough areas of bone) or by tendons, which are tough, springy connective tissues.

Tendons are structures that connect the muscles of your body to the bones of your skeletal system thus allowing your body to move.

Tendons are connective tissue that attach bones to muscles. The achillies tendon can be felt at the back of the leg where it connects the calf muscle to the heel.
