5 True/False questions
suture → 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
bursitis → group of rheumatic diseases that affect synovial joints; damage to the articular cartilages; classified as either degenerative or inflammatory
rheumatoid → 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
synchondrosis → 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
gomphosis → e.g. teeth; synarthrotic
