1 Chapter 9: Articulations 1

2 Articulations Body movement occurs at joints where 2 bones connect Articulation = joints; site where two or more bones meet 2

3 Joint Structure Determines direction and distance of movement (range of motion) Joint strength decreases as mobility increases 3

4 Anatomical/Structural Classification of Joints (based on connecting material 1.Fibrous: bones joined by fibrous CT with no space 2.Cartilaginous: bones joined by pad or bridge of cartilage 3.Synovial: bones separated by fluid- filled cavity, surrounded by CT 4

5 Structural Classification Table 9–2 5

6 Physiological/Functional Classifications of Joints: (based on the amount of movement) 1.Synarthrosis: immovable joints - No movement - Fibrous or cartilaginous connections 2.Amphiarthrosis: slightly moveable joint - Little movement - Fibrous or cartilaginous connections 3.Diarthrosis: freely moveable joint - More movement - always synovial connections 6

7 What common characteristics do typical synarthrotic and amphiarthrotic joints share? A.joint capsules filled with fluids B.non-restricted movement of bony regions C.bony regions separated by fibrous connective tissue D.articular cartilages and bursae 7

8 Synarthroses (Immovable Joints) Are very strong Edges of bones may touch or interlock 4 Types of Synarthrotic Joints –Suture –Gomphosis –Synchondrosis –Synostosis 8

9 1. Synarthoroses * Immoveable Strength 1.Synotosis: fused bones - Suture of skull and epiphyseal lines of long bones 2.Suture: interlocked bones, sealed with dense CT - Found only in the skull 3.Gomphosis: tooth in alveolar socket, held by peridontal ligament - Binds teeth to sockets 4.Synchrondrosis: hyaline cartilage bridge between bones - Epiphyseal cartilage of long bones and between vertebrosternal ribs and sternum 9

10 2. Amphiarthroses * Slightly Moveable, strength with some mobility Syndesmosis: bones connected by ligament Symphasis: bones separated by pad of fibrocartilage 10

11 3. Diarthorses = Synovial Joints Great mobility, less strength and stability At ends of long bones Within articular capsules Lined with synovial membrane 11

12 Features of Synovial Joints 1.Articular Cartilage 2.Synovial Cavity 3.Articular Capsule 4.Synovial Fluid 5.Accessory Structures - Meniscus, fat pad, accessory ligaments, tendons, bursa, synovial tendon sheath 12

13 (a) (b) Synovial ligament Bursa ibia Femur Patella Articular cartilage Fat pad Joint capsule Meniscus Joint cavity Intracapsular ligament Quadriceps tendon Patellar ligament T Marrow cavity Spongy bone Periosteum Synovial membrane Articular cartilage Articular capsule Joint cavity (containing synovial fluid) Compact bone 13

14 1. Articular Cartilages Hyaline cartilage No perichondrium or periosteum Pad articulating surfaces within articular capsules: –prevent bones from touching Smooth surfaces lubricated by synovial fluid: –reduce friction 14

15 Features of Synovial Joints 2.Synovial cavity: -Space between/around opposing bones -Has synovial fluid 3.Articular Capsule: 2 layers -Outer -dense irregular connective tissue, continuous with periosteum -Inner -synovial membrane (areolar CT), covers inside surface of cavity except articular cartilage, secretes synovial fluid 15

16 4. Synovial Fluid filtrate from blood plasma + hyaluronic acid from fibroblasts * Functions: 1. Lubrication 2. Nutrient distribution: diffusion medium 3. Shock absorption 16

17 Synovial Joints: Accessory Structures Cartilages (Meniscus) Fat pads Ligaments Tendons Bursae Synovial Tendon Sheath 17

18 Synovial Joints: Accessory Structures 1.Meniscus: -fibrocartilage pad = articular disc -Subdivides cavity or changes shape of articular surface, limits range of motion -Cushion the joint 2.Fat Pad: -Adipose -Superficial to joint capsule, -Function: protection and space filler 18

19 Synovial Joints: Accessory Structures 3.Accessory Ligaments: -Dense regular connective tissue -Either part of capsule, inside joint, or outside capsule -Function: support and strengthen joint -Sprain: Ligaments with torn collagen fibers 4.Tendons: -Dense regular connective tissue -Attach muscle to bone -Function: Add stability to the joint 19

20 Synovial Joints: Accessory Structures 5.Bursa: -Synovial fluid filled pocket -Function: reduces friction -Cushion areas where tendons or ligaments rub 6.Synovial Tendon Sheath: - Tubular bursa around a tendon 20

21 Synovial Joints: Stabilizing Factors Prevent injury by limiting range of motion: –collagen fibers (joint capsule, ligaments) –articulating surfaces and menisci –other bones, muscles, or fat pads –tendons of articulating bones 21

22 Functional Classification Table 9–1 22

23 In a newborn infant, the large bones of the skull are joined by fibrous connective tissue. Which type of joints are these? The bones later grow, interlock, and form immovable joints. Which type of joints are these? A.synarthrosis; gomphosis B.symphysis; sutural C.synchondrosis; synostosis D.syndesmosis; sutural 23

24 Why would improper circulation of synovial fluid lead to the degeneration of articular cartilages in the affected joint? A.Synovial fluid nourishes articular cartilage. B.Blood flow follows synovial fluid circulation. C.Articular cartilage is composed of synovial fluid. D.Both A and B. 24

25 Joint Injuries 1.Sprain: damage to ligament -Some collagen torn, slow to heal 2.Bursitis: -Inflammation of a bursa due to trauma, infection, or repetitive motion ** Synovial joints stabilized by articular capsule and accessory structures to restrict mobility: Increase Mobility = Decrease Stability = Increase chance of dislocation 25

26 Injuries Luxation: –Dislocation articulating surfaces forced out of position –Joint Displacement –Usually damages articular cartilage, ligaments, and joint capsule –Pain receptors in all CT of the Joint, except articular cartilage, to prevent actions Subluxation: –Partial dislocation –Displacement beyond usual anatomical limitation “Double Jointed” 26

27 The dynamic movements of the skeleton. 27

28 Movements at Synovial Joints 1.Linear Movements: -Gliding: slight movement in any direction 2.Angular Movements: one plane of motion -Flexion: reduce angle in frontal plane -Extension: increase angle in frontal place -Hyperextension: extension past anatomical position -Abduction: move away from longitudinal axis in sagittal plane -Adduction: move toward longitudinal axis in sagittal plane -Circumduction: move in loop without rotation 3.Rotational Movements: turn on axis -Medial Rotation: turn in toward body -Lateral Rotation: turn out away from body 28

51 KEY CONCEPT A joint can’t be both mobile and strong The greater the mobility, the weaker the joint Mobile joints are supported by muscles and ligaments, not bone-to-bone connections 51
