Joints/Articulations


What is an articulation?


Function of Articulations/Joints

  • Bind parts of skeletal system together

  • Allow for bone growth

  • Allow skeleton to change shape during child birth

  • Enable body to move


Classified by type of tissue that binds the bones


Types of Joints:

  • Fibrous

  • Cartilaginous

  • Synovial


Fibrous Joints

  • Syndesmosis

  • Suture

  • Gomphosis

  • Composed of dense fibrous connective tissue

  • Limited to no movement


Gomphosis


Cartilaginous Joints

  • Synchondrosis

  • Symphysis

  • Composed of cartilage

  • Move slightly


Synovial Joint

  • Most joints

  • Large range of movement

  • Composition:

    • Articular cartilage

    • Joint/articular capsule

    • Synovial membrane (synovial fluid)


Types of Synovial Joints

  • Ball-and-socket joint

    Largest range of motion


2. Condyloid Joint


3. Gliding Joint


4. Hinge Joint


5. Pivot Joint


6. Saddle joint
