Recap of Joints

JOINT- A place where two or more bones meet.


Types of Synovial Joints

Freelymoveable (synovial) joints can be divided into six groups depending upon how they move.

KEY

Ball & Socket Joint

Hinge Joint

Pivot Joint

Gliding Joint

Saddle Joint

Condyloid 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,

e.g. thehips,shouldersandknees.


In the picture below the ball and socket joint at the hip allows the player to get height and then the ball and socket joint at the shoulder allows him to SLAM DUNK!!


Hinge joint (the elbow) in use taking a set shot


The knee (HINGE JOINT) is used when flexing (bending) and extending (straightening) the leg to kick a football


Spin bowling requires a complex movement of the wrist joint – what type of joint?


Bowling underarm involves extension and flexion of the shoulder – what type of joint?


Sporting Movements
