- functional classification
- structural classification
rigid, cartilaginous bridge between two articulating bones; e.g. epiphyseal cartilage
- b group of rheumatic diseases that affect synovial joints; damage to the articular cartilages; classified as either degenerative or inflammatory
- c also, luxation; displacement of any part, esp. the temporary displacement of a bone from its normal position in a joint
- d synarthrosis
- e bony fusion
5 Multiple choice questions
- degenerative joint disease
- inflammation of a bursa (a sac or cavity that contains fluid to reduce friction), causing pain and swelling whenever the associated tendon or ligament moves
- ligament is stretched to the point at which some of the collagen fibers are torn; ligament remains functional, and the structure of the joint is not affected
- immovable joint with fibrous connective tissue or cartilage between the bone surfaces.
Movement is absent or limited, and a joint cavity is lacking. It includes the synchondrosis, suture, and syndesmosis types of joints
- e.g. teeth; synarthrotic
5 True/False questions
articulations of the axial skeleton →
amphiarthrosis → articulation in which the body surfaces are connected by cartilage; mobility is slight but may be exerted in all directions.
The articulations of the bodies of the vertebrae are examples
synovial joints →
diarthrosis → also, synovial; articulation in which opposing bones move freely (e.g., a hinge joint or a pivot joint).
structure of a synovial joint → bony fusion
