What are joints
What are joints?

A place in the body where two bones come together is called a joint.

There are two types of joints; immovable and moveable.

Moveable joints allow the body to make a wide range of movements, whereas immovable joints allow little to no movement at all.



Ball and socket joint
Ball-and-Socket joint

Ball and socket joints allow the greatest range of motion.

This joint allows you to move in a 360 degree range of motion

Examples – shoulder and hip


Pivot joint
