In brief: Function loss, defor
Most tendons perform a specified function.
Loss of that function or deformity of the associated joint is likely the first indication of tendon or ligament injury.

In brief: Several ways
Tendons and ligaments don't break, they tear or cause avulsion injuries where they tear a piece of bone off the main portion of bone.
X-ray, ultrasound, MRI will usually tell the story.
