Functional Classification of Joints

(1) Synarthroses (Immovable)
(2) Amphiarthrosis (Slightly movable)
(3) Diarthroses (Fully movable)


ligaments that hold tooth in bony socket,
immovable joint,

Structural Classification of Joints

(1) Fibrous: (bone ends united by collagen)
sutures, syndesmoses, gomphoses
(2) Cartilaginous: (bones united by cartilage)
synchondrosis, symphyses, synovial joints

Types of synovial joints

Planar, Hinge, Pivot, Saddle, Ball & Socket, Condyloid/Ellipsoid

Flexion, Extension, Hypertension

Flexion- bent knee
Extension-extend knee
Hypertension-bring leg back

Abduction, Adduction, Circumduction

Abduction-arms out
Adduction-arms in

Rotation, Lateral rotation, Medial rotation

Rotation- twisting
Lateral rotation- twisting out
Medial rotation- twisting in

Pronation, Supination

Pronation-palm down
Supination- palm up

Dorsiflexion, Plantar flexion

Dorsiflexion- heel down toes up
Plantar flexion- toes pointed down

Inversion, Eversion

Inversion-foot in
Eversion-foot out

Protraction, Retraction

Protraction- chin forward
Retraction- chin back

Elevation, Depression

Elevation-shoulders up
Depression- shoulders down


Opposition- thumb and index finger pinch. "OK"

Factors influencing Joint stability

(1) Shape of articular surface
(2) Ligaments
(3) Muscle tone

Disorders and Imbalances: Sprain

Sprain type 1- stretched ligament
Sprain type 2- ligaments torn slightly
Sprain type 3- ligaments torn completely

Lyme disease

deer ticks, bullseye rash, joint disease


Degenerative joint disease, non-inflammatory, only cartilage affected, deterioration of cartilage produces bone spurs and restricts movements, pain upon awakening and lessens with movement.

Gouty Arthritis

Uric acid crystals build up in joints-pain.
waste products of metabolism build up and deposited in cartilage causing inflammation and swelling. bones fuse.

Rheumatoid arthritis

Autoimmune disorder, cartilage attacked by immune system, inflammation and swelling, pain, joint fusion


examination of joint, small instrument, remove torn knee cartilage, small incisions


replacement of joint, total hip replaces acetablum and head of femur, plastic socket and metal head, knee replacement.


Treating a sprain:
Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation
