synovial joints
Synovial Joints
  • Articulating bones are separated by a joint cavity

features of synovial joints
Features of Synovial Joints
  • Articular cartilage covers the ends of bones
  • A fibrous articular capsule encloses joint surfaces
  • A joint cavity is filled with
  • Ligaments
structures associated with the synovial joint
Structures Associated with the Synovial Joint
  • Bursae—flattened fibrous sacs
  • Tendon sheath

clinical forms of arthritis
Clinical Forms of Arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
    • An autoimmune disease
developmental aspects of the skeletal system
Developmental Aspects of the Skeletal System
  • At birth, the skull bones are incomplete
  • Bones are joined by fibrous membranes
  • Fontanels are completely replaced with bone
skeletal changes throughout life1
Skeletal Changes Throughout Life
  • Adolescence
  • Size of cranium in relationship to body
    • 2 years
    • 8 or 9 years
    • Between ages 6 and 11
skeletal changes throughout life4
Skeletal Changes Throughout Life
  • Curvatures of the spine
    • Primary curvatures
    • Secondary curvatures
    • Abnormal spinal curvatures are often congenital
skeletal changes throughout life6
Skeletal Changes Throughout Life
  • Osteoporosis
    • Bone-thinning disease afflicting
    • Disease makes bones fragile and bones can easily fracture
    • Vertebral collapse results in kyphosis
    • Estrogen aids in health and normal density of a female skeleton
