Recap of Joints
JOINT- A place where two or more bones meet.
Freelymoveable (synovial) joints can be divided into six groups depending upon how they move.
Ball & Socket Joint
Types of Joints
There are 3 main types of joint found in the body.
1.Fixed or Immoveable Joints
The bones at an immoveable joint cannotmove - they overlap or interlock, and are held together by a tough fibre, e.g. theskull.
2.Slightly Moveable Joints
The bones at a slightly moveable joint can only move
a little - they are held together by strong straps
called ligaments and are joined by protective pads
known as cartilage, e.g. theribs.
3.Freely Moveable Joints
At a freely moveable joint the bones move freely.
They are also known as synovialjoints, and
are the largest group of joints found in the body,
