tegang/menegang


Explanation:
STRAIN tendon are more likely to tear =>
1) Tendon yang TEGANG/MENEGANG lebih mudah tergeliat

2) Tendon yang TEGANG/MENEGANG lebih mudah tercarik

NOTE:

- the dictionary gives 'tear' as 'tergeliat ... injure (muscle, ligament) by straining it accidentally and violently, tergeliat ...'

- but perhaps 'tercarik' can also be used to denote actual "microscopic breaks" in the tendon fibres.
