The general public often confuses ligaments for tendons, and sprains for strains.  Ligaments and tendons are two separate tissues in the human anatomy, with one of these connective tissues supporting one bony structure with another, and the other connecting muscles to bones.  When either of these tissues are injured, it is referred to as a sprain or a strain…but careful because they are not interchangeable and each term is specific to the type of tissue injured.  This video gives you an explanation of these two tissues of the human anatomy, and the correct terminology for describing injury to them.
