Aponeurosis | function

Function

Like tendons, aponeuroses attached to pennate muscles can be stretched by the forces of muscular contraction, absorbing energy like a spring and returning it when they recoil to unloaded conditions.[4] Also serving as an origin or insertion site for certain muscles e.g latissimus dorsi.
