Fibrous joints

Fibrous Joints

  • Syndesmosis

  • Suture

  • Gomphosis

  • Composed of dense fibrous connective tissue

  • Limited to no movement


Joints articulations

Gomphosis


Cartilaginous joints

Cartilaginous Joints

  • Synchondrosis

  • Symphysis

  • Composed of cartilage

  • Move slightly


Synovial joint

Synovial Joint

  • Most joints

  • Large range of movement

  • Composition:

    • Articular cartilage

    • Joint/articular capsule
