A tendon is a structure in the body that connects muscle to bone. As the muscle contracts, it pulls on the tendon, which moves the bone. Tendons are made mostly of collagen. Inflammation of a tendon is called tendinitis. Tendons can tear or rupture if they are pulled too hard by the muscle or if they degenerate.Found on http://www.aofas.org/footcaremd/overview/Pages/Glossary.aspx
