The Tendon Ligament Cartilage Connection


How it works

the Tendon-Ligament-Cartilage Connection

Only as Strong as the Weakest Link
Say you lift a weight, serve a tennis ball or go for a jog. You initiate every movement with your muscles. As your muscle contracts (shortens) it “tugs” on the tendons that keep muscle attached to bone. At the same time the tendons kick into action, stress is placed on the ligaments that keep bone attached to bone. Movements that involve impact put great stress on the ligaments. The end point of all the movement is the cartilage. The cartilage prevents the two bones involved in the movement from rubbing against each other. You can easily see why the greater the force of movement, the greater the range of movement, or the more repetitions of the movement, the greater the amount of stress on all of your joint parts.

What’s more, a slight weakness in the ligament (due to loss of collagen) can lead to even greater stress on the tendon and cartilage. Similarly, a weakness in the tendon (due to loss of collagen) can lead to undue stress on the ligament, which in turn, places the cartilage under severe stress. And when the cartilage breaks down it releases fragments directly into your joint. That’s when you feel pain. The bottom line is, your joints are only as strong as the weakest link in the movement cycle.

BioSil ON YOUR GAME is clinically proven to inhibit the discomfort-causing fragmentation cartilage. Plus ON YOUR GAME increases collagen formation, the “stuff” that cartilage, tendons and ligaments are primarily made from. That’s why ON YOUR GAME is clinically proven to increase joint comfort, decrease stiffness, increase flexibility and increase range of motion. See Full Clinical Trial Results.
