this is a type of functional classification of joints that is immovable and tightly connected (this is due to fibrous connective tissue)
examples of this type of functional classification of joints includes sutures and gomphosis
examples of this type of functional classification of joints includes symphysis and syndesmosis
this is a type of amphiarthrosis that is made up of fibrocartilaginous pads.
Examples of this include the vertebrae (intervertebral discs) and pubic bones (the pubic symphysis)
type of amphiarthrosis that is made up of ligamentous.
Example includes tibiofibular joint
a synonym for synovial
type of functional classification of joints that is highly movable.
it involves long bones and provides the largest range of motion
EX: shoulder, hip, elbow, phalanges
part of synovial joint that surrounds the joint by a fibrous dense irregular connective tissue
part of synovial joint that lubricates, absorbs shock, and distributes nutrients and waste.
part of synovial joint that reinforces and strengthens joints. it has two parts; extracapsular and intracapsular
this type of joint is made up of two smaller joints: glenohumeral joint and acromioclavicular joint.
type of shoulder joint that is made up of the glenoid fossa (the socket of the scapula) and the head of the humerus (the proximal epiphysis)
type of shoulder joint that is made up of the acromium process and the clavicle
acetabulum, head of femur, ligamentum teres, fibrocartilage pad, and iliofemoral ligament
structures that make up hip joint
made up of condyles of femur, tibial plateau, menisci, posterior cruciate ligament, anterior cruciate ligament, intercapsular ligaments, lateral collateral ligaments, medial collateral ligaments, extracapsular ligaments,
part of knee joint that is lateral and medial
contains fibrocartilage pads that provide extra cushion and fill gaps in capsules and redirects snyovial fluids
