1 ACCESS HE Human Biology
Bones & Joints ACCESS HE Human Biology Clare Hargreaves-Norris

2 Clare Hargreaves-Norris
Introduction Bones are connected to each other by connective tissue. Where two bones meet a joint is formed. Without joints the skeleton would not be able to move or have very limited movement. Fibrous connective tissue is used for immovable joints such is the cranium. Fibro-cartilage is used for semi-moveable joints such as the vertebrae. The most common joints are synovial joints and these hold freely moveable joints together by a connective tissue called a ligament. Clare Hargreaves-Norris

Synovial joints Synovial joints have a fibrous capsule. The fibrous capsule is lined with synovial membrane which secretes synovial fluid. Synovial fluid lubricates the joint. Articular cartilage coats the ends of the bones to protect against wear and tear by reducing friction at the joint. Extra ligaments may surround the outside of the joint to provide extra strength. Some joints also contain discs of cartilage to maintain stability. However, the main support to the joints is provided by muscles. Clare Hargreaves-Norris

Synovial joints. There are several types of synovial joints. Ball and Socket. Hinge. Pivot. Saddle. Gliding. Condyliod. Clare Hargreaves-Norris

Planes of Movement. Flexion, (bones of joints brought towards each other) and Extension, (straightening). Abduction, (away from the body) and Adduction (towards the body). Rotation, (turning around), Pronation (palms upwards) and Supination (palms downwards). Clare Hargreaves-Norris

6 Clare Hargreaves-Norris
Ball and socket Location Movement The hip and shoulder joints are an example of ball and socket joints. The ball and socket joint is one of the most mobile joints. It allows movement in three planes: Flexion and Extension. Abduction and Adduction. Rotation. Clare Hargreaves-Norris

7 Clare Hargreaves-Norris
Hinge joint Location Movement Examples of the hinge joint are the elbow and the joints of the phalanges in the foot and hand. The hinge joint allows movement in one plane only: Flexion and Extension. Clare Hargreaves-Norris

8 Clare Hargreaves-Norris
Pivot joint Location Movement Pivot joints are located at the joint between the radius and ulna and in-between the atlas and axis (top two vertebrae at the base of the skull). The pivot joint allows movement in one plane only: Rotation, Pronation and Supination. Clare Hargreaves-Norris

9 Clare Hargreaves-Norris
Gliding joint Location Movement The gliding joint is found in the foot, between the tarsals and in the hand, among the carpals. Movement at the gliding joint occurs as two flat surfaces slide over each other. In the hand, the carpals will slide over each to allow: Flexion, extension and radial or ulnar deviation. Likewise, in the foot, the tarsals slide over each other during pronation & supination. Clare Hargreaves-Norris

10 Clare Hargreaves-Norris
Condyloid joint Location Movement The condyloid joint is found at the knee joint and where the temporal and mandible bones meet. The condyloid joint allows primary movement in mainly one plane: Flexion and Extension with small amounts Rotation also. Clare Hargreaves-Norris

11 Clare Hargreaves-Norris
Saddle joint Location Movement The saddle joint is only found at the site where the carpal bone meets the metacarpal bone of the thumb. The saddle joint allows two planes of motion: Flexion and Extension. Abduction and adduction with a small amount of rotation also allowed. Clare Hargreaves-Norris

12 Clare Hargreaves-Norris
Terminology. Lamella: a thin layer. Lacuna: a small cavity or depresssion. Osteocyte: bone cell. Concentric: circular. Periosteum: hard outer shell of bone. Circumferential: around the edge. Trabecula: thin bars of bony tissue in cancellous (spongy) bone. Clare Hargreaves-Norris
