Light microscopy of a ligament viewed with light microscopy. Bundles of collagen fibres show a ‘crimp’ pattern typically associated with stretching/straining and relaxing of this tissue. The collagen acts to resist stretching and disruption when force such as strain/displacement is applied to the ligament. Magnification x120 when printed at 10 cm.
