classifications of joints
Classifications of Joints
  • Articulations (joints) are the unions between bones
    • they hold bones together and allow some flexibility to the skeletal system
  • Arthrology is the study of joints, whereas
  • kinesiology is the study of human motion – the interactions of the bones, joints and muscles
classifications of joints4
Classifications of Joints
  • Joints may be classified either structurally or functionally
  • Functional classification focuses on the amount of movement allowed at the joint.
    • Synarthroses are immovable joints (e.g.: most fibrous joints)
    • Amphiarthroses are slightly movable joints (e.g.: most cartilagenous joints)
    • Diarthroses are freely moving joints (e.g.: all synovial joints)
  • Structural classification is based on whether there is connective tissue fiber, cartilage, or a joint cavity between the articulating bones; include fibrous, cartilaginous, and synovial joints
fibrous joints
Fibrous Joints
  • Fibrous CT holds the articulating bones together; joints lack cavities. Three types of these joints include:
    • Sutures - synarthrotic joints found only in the skull; dense regular CT binds the articulating bones.
    • Syndesmoses - joints held together by collagenous fibers or sheets of fibrous tissue called interosseous ligaments (e.g.: bet. distal tibia & fibula); may allow slight movement but are synarthrotic
    • Gomphosis (dentoalveolar joint) - where a tooth root attaches to the periodontal ligament of the dental alveolus (tooth socket) in the jaw

cartilaginous joints
Cartilaginous Joints
  • Cartilaginous Joints - allow limited movement in response to twisting or compression
  • Two types are:

- Symphyses - adjoining bones are interconnected by a disk of fibrocartilage

(e.g.: pubic symphysis and intervertebral joints)

- Synchondroses - cartilaginous joints with hyaline cartilage between the articulating bones

(e.g.: epiphyseal plate and costochondral articulations bet. ribs & sternum)

synovial joints
Synovial Joints
  • Synovial Joints - freely movable (diarthrotic) joints enclosed by joint capsules containing synovial fluid
  • The most common body joints, they are categorized by the type of movement they permit –gliding, hinge, pivot, condyloid, saddle, ball & socket
  • A synovial joint’s range of motion is determined by 3 factors:
    • Structure of the articulating bones
    • Strength of the joint capsule and associated ligaments & tendons
    • Size, arrangement, and action of muscles around the joint
synovial joints12
Synovial Joints

Synovial Joint Structure

  • Joint surfaces are enclosed by a 2-layered articular capsule (sleeve of fibrous CT), creating a joint (synovial) cavity
  • The outer layer is a fibrous capsule of dense irregular CT, continuous with the bone periosteum
  • The interior of the capsule is lined with a synovial membrane ofloose CT, which produces a lubricating fluid that reduces friction
  • Articulating surfaces of the bones are covered with articularcartilage
  • The articular capsule is usually reinforced with ligaments and may contain bursae and tendon sheaths (fluid-filled sacs that reduce friction between muscles or where tendons cross the bone)
  • Fibrocartilage pads (articular discs) may be present within the capsule (e.g., knee menisci)
  • Each synovial joint is served by major nerves & BVs

synovial joints15
Synovial Joints
  • Plane (gliding) - articular surfaces are flat or slightly curved, allowing sliding movements in one or two planes
    • (e.g.: intercarpal & intertarsal joints)
  • Hinge - rounded process of one bone fits into the concave surface of another to allow movement in one plane (monaxial), usually flexion and extension
    • (e.g.: elbow & phalanges)

Fig. 9.7 Synovial joints, classified by the shape of their articular surfaces. a) Plane joint b) Hinge joint

synovial joints16
Synovial Joints
  • Pivot - rounded or conical surface on one bone articulates with a depression in another bone; permits rotation about a central axis
    • (e.g.: atlas & axis joint, proximal joint of ulna and radius)
  • Condyloid - oval convex of one bone fits into a concave depression of another bone; permits angular movement in two directions (biaxial)
    • (e.g.: wrist joint and metacarpophalangeal = knuckles)

Fig. 9.7 Synovial joints continued

c) Pivot joint d) Condyloid joint

synovial joints17
Synovial Joints
  • Saddle (modified condyloid) - articulating surfaces are saddle shaped: one bone has a concave surface, the other a convex surface; allows biaxial movement
    • (e.g.: carpometacarpal joint of the thumb)
  • Ball & Socket - ball shaped head of one bone fits into a cuplike depression of another; allows movement in all directions and pivotal rotation (multiaxial)
    • (e.g.: hip & shoulder joints)
movements at synovial joints
Movements at Synovial Joints

Every muscle is attached to bone (or other CT

structures) at two points:

  • The origin is the stationary, immovable, or less movable attachment (usually proximal)
  • The insertion is the more movable attachment (usually distal)
movements at synovial joints20
Movements at Synovial Joints
  • Body movement occurs when muscles contract across diarthrotic synovial joints.

Common body movements include:

  • Angular movements - increase or decrease the joint angle produced by articulating bones
  • Flexion - decreases the joint angle on an anteroposterior plane; this is typical of hinge joints (e.g.: bending the knee or elbow).
    • Dorsiflexion occurs as the top surface of the foot is elevated
    • Plantar flexion occurs as the foot is pointed downward
  • Extension - increases the joint angle and the distance between two bones or parts of the body (e.g.: straightening the elbow or knee).
    • If the extension is greater than 180, it is called hyperextension
movements at synovial joints22
Movements at Synovial Joints

Angular Movements (con’t)

  • Abduction - movement of a limb away from the body’s midline in a lateral direction
  • Adduction - movement of a limb toward the body’s midline (the opposite of abduction)
movements at synovial joints24
Movements at Synovial Joints
  • Circular Movements - a bone with a rounded or oval surface articulates with a depression on another bone
  • Rotation - bone movement around its longitudinal axis, without lateral or medial displacement; common in ball & socket joints and rotation of atlas around the axis dens
    • Supination - movement of the palm from a posterior (or facing down) to an anterior (or facing up) position
    • Pronation - opposite of supination
movements at synovial joints26
Movements at Synovial Joints
  • Circumduction - circular movement of a body part in a cone shape
    • combines flexion, extension, abduction, & adduction
    • common in ball & socket joints

Special movements

  • Inversion - movement of the sole of the foot inward (medially)
  • Eversion - opposite of inversion; movement of the sole of the foot outward (laterally)
  • Protraction - movement of part of the body forward (e.g.: jutting out the jaw)
  • Retraction - pulling back the protracted part
  • Elevation - raises a body part (e.g.: shrugging the shoulders)
  • Depression - opposite of elevation
specific joints of the body
Specific Joints of the Body
  • Temporomandibular joint - formed by the mandibular condyle and the mandibular fossa & articular tubercle of the temporal bone
  • This joint is a combination hinge and gliding joint; movements include:
    • depression and elevation of the mandible as a hinge joint
  • protraction and retraction as a gliding joint
    • lateral rotary movements
  • Three ligaments support and reinforce the TM joint
  • An articular disk separates the joint cavity into superior and inferior compartments
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome is a misalignment of one or both TM joints. Symptoms range from moderate facial pain to intense pain in the head, neck, shoulders, or back

shoulder joint
Shoulder Joint
  • Glenohumeral (shoulder) joint - formed by the head of the humerus and scapular glenoid fossa
  • This is a ball & socket joint and the most movable joint of the body, and relatively easily dislocated; allows circumduction and rotation of the arm
  • Ligaments pass around the shoulder rim, between the corocoid process & greater tubercle, and between the greater & lesser tubercles
  • The stability of the shoulder is provided mainly by the tendons of the subscapularis, infraspinatus, and teres minor muscles

- forms the musculotendinous (rotator) cuff

elbow joint
Elbow Joint
  • Elbow joint - a hinge joint composed of two articulations:
  • The humeroulnar joint, formed by the trochlea of the humerus & trochlear notch of the ulna
  • The humeroradial joint, formed by the capitulum of the humerus and the head of the radius
  • Both of these articulations are enclosed in a single joint capsule

- allows flexion and extension of the forearm

wrist joint
Wrist Joint
  • Wrist - formed by the distal ends of the ulna & radius and the scaphoid, lunate, and triquetral carpal bones
  • This is a synovial, condyloid joint

- allows circumduction

hip joint
Hip Joint
  • Coxal (hip) joint - formed by the femur head and the acetabulum of the os coxae
  • The hip is a ball & socket joint that is stronger and more stable than the shoulder; allows circumduction and rotation of the leg
  • The hip is secured by a strong fibrous joint capsule, several ligaments, and a number of powerful muscles
knee joint
Knee Joint
  • Tibiofemoral (knee) joint - located between the femur and tibia, the knee is the largest, most complex, most vulnerable joint in the body; it is formed by 3 joints
  • Lateral tibiofemoral joint between the lateral condyles of the femur & tibia and the lateral meniscus
  • Intermediate patellofemoral joint between the patella and patellar surface of the femur
  • Medial tibiofemoral joint between the medial condyles of the femur & tibia and the medial meniscus
  • The menisci are fibrocartilage disks between the condyles of the femur and tibia
  • Collateral ligaments support medial (tibial) & and lateral (fibular) sides of the knee; anterior & posterior cruciate ligaments lie deep within the knee
  • Knee injuries often involve the 3 C’s - the anterior cruciate ligament, collateral ligaments, and cartilage

ankle joint
Ankle Joint

Talocrural (ankle) joint - the 2 articulations within

the ankle are:

  • The medial malleolus of the tibia articulates with the tallus
  • The lateral malleolus of the fibula articulates with the tallus
  • These are synovial, hinge joints that allow dorsiflexion and plantar flexion

joint disorders
Joint Disorders

Joint Injuries

  • A strain involves excessive stretching of tendons or muscles surrounding a joint; often caused by not “warming up” before exercise
  • A sprain involves the tearing of ligaments or tendons surrounding a joint; usually takes longer to heal than a strain
  • A dislocation (luxation) is a derangement of the articulating bones in a joint; usually more serious than a sprain

Joint Disorders

Inflammatory & Degenerative Conditions

  • Bursitis is the inflammation of the bursa associated with a joint
  • Tendonitis is the inflammation of a tendon
  • Arthritis is a designation for joint diseases which have the symptoms of edema, inflammation, and pain. The most common types of arthritis are:
  • Rheumatoid arthritis - results from autoimmune attack against the joint tissues, results in deterioration of the articular cartilage, joint ossification, and crippling of the joints
joint disorders49
Joint Disorders
  • Osteoarthritis is the softening and disintegration of articular cartilage; it results from aging and irritation of the joints.

- more common, but usually less damaging than rheumatoid arthritis

  • Gouty arthritis results when excess uric acid is retained in the blood and sodium urate crystals are deposited in the joints; the crystals irritate the articular cartilage and synovial membrane, causing swelling, pain, and deterioration.

- most commonly occurs in the great toe joint of males

joint disorders51
Joint Disorders
  • Lyme Disease - joint pain and arthritis caused by spirochette bacteria transmitted by ticks.
    • Symptoms include skin rash, flu-like symptoms, foggy thinking.
    • Treatable with antibiotics in early stages

Treatment of Joint Disorders

  • Arthroscopy involves making a small incision into the joint capsule and inserting an arthroscope to view the area
  • Joint prostheses can replace diseased joints
