1 JOINTS OF THE HUMAN BODY

2  Joint is a point of connection between two bones  Strands of connective tissue, ligaments, hold the bones together and ensure the stability of joints

3 JOINT CLASSIFICATION  Joints are classified according to their motion capabilities:  Synarthroses  Immovable  Amphiarthroses  Slightly movable  Diarthroses  Allow the greatest amount of motion

4 WHAT IS A LIGAMENT  A band of tough fibrous tissue joining two bones together  Ligaments maybe capsular, extrinsic, or intrinsic  Capsular ligaments are thickenings within a fibrous joint capsule  Extrinsic ligaments run between bony joints, around the outside of a synovial cavity  Intrinsic ligaments occur within a synovial cavity and are generally less common than the other types  Ligaments are relatively non-elastic, but flexible enough to allow movement  Their main tasks are to bind bones together, to strengthen and stabilize joints (especially joints, such as the knee and shoulder, where the articulating bones do not fit very tightly together), and to limit joint movement to certain directions

5 JOINT CLASSIFICATION CONT’D  Joints are further classified by the material that joints them:  Fibrous joint  Allow no movement  E.g. sutures of the scull  Cartilaginous joints  Allow limited movement  E.g. intervertebral discs  Synovial joints  Allow large range of movements  E.g. hip joint

6 CHARACTERISTICS OF JOINTS  Ligament  Connects bone to bone  Fibrous non-elastic material that limits motion  Tendon  Connects muscle to bone  Fibrous tissue with some elasticity  Transmits mechanical work from the muscle to move the bone  Disc  Present in interior of some joints to lesson shock  Permits two types of movement to occur simultaneously  Bursa  Collapsed bag with thin walls and a moist inner surface  Eliminates friction when a tendon or muscle comes into contact with another object.

7 TYPES OF SYNOVIAL JOINTS  There are three basic types of synovial joints:  unilateral (rotation only about one axis)  biaxial joints (movement about two perpendicular axes)  multiaxial joints (movement about all three perpendicular axes)

8 TYPES OF SYNOVIAL JOINTS CONT’D  Synovial are further classified into: 1. Hinge Joint 2. Pivot Joint 3. Condyloid Joint 4. Saddle-shaped joint 5. Ball and Socket Joint 6. Plane Joint

9 1. HINGE (GINGLYMUS) JOINT  Uniaxial  Has one articulating surface that is convex, and another that is concave  E.g. humero-ulnar elbow joint, interphalangeal joint

10 PIVOT JOINT  Uniaxial  E.g. head of radius rotating against ulna

11

12 CONDYLOID (KNUCKLE) JOINT  Biaxial (flexion-extension, abduction-adduction)  The joint surfaces are usually oval  One joint surface is an ovular convex shape, and the other is a reciprocally shaped concave surface  E.g. metacarpophalangeal joint

13 SADDLE JOINT  Biaxial (flexion-extension, abduction-adduction)  The bones set together as in sitting on a horse  E.g. carpometacarpal joint of the thumb

14 BALL AND SOCKET JOINT  Multiaxial (rotation in all planes)  A rounded bone is fitted into a cup=like receptacle  E.g. shoulder and hip joints

15 PLANE (GLIDING) JOINT  Uniaxial (permits gliding movements)  The bone surfaces involved are nearly flat  E.g. intercarpal joints and acromioclavicular joint of the vertebrae

16 JOINTS OF THE PECTORAL GIRDLE

17 STERNOCLAVICULAR JOINT  Connects the sternum to the clavicle  the only joint connecting the pectoral girdle to the axial skeleton  true synovial joint strengthened by an intracapsular disc and extrinsic ligaments

18 ACROMIOCLAVICULAR JOINT  unites the lateral end of the clavicle with the acromion process of the scapula  where shoulder separations often occur in sports such as hockey, baseball, and football

19 GLENOHUMERAL JOINT  Connects the upper limb and the scapula  A typical multiaxial joint  has a wide range of movement at this joint  compromise = relative lack of stability

20 UPPER LIMB JOINTS

21 ELBOW JOINT  There are three joints at the elbow:  humero-ulnar joint  medial (with respect to anatomical position)  between the trochlea of the humerus and the olecranon process of the ulna  humero-radial joint  lateral  between the capitulum of the humerus and the head of the radius  radio-ulnar joint  between the radius and the ulna

22 ELBOW JOINT CONT’D Humerus Ulna Radius Humero-Radial Joint Humero-Ulnar Joint Radio-Ulnar Joint

23 JOINTS OF THE PELVIC GIRDLE

24 HIP JOINT - Between the head of the femur and the cup (acetabulum) of the hip bone (os coxae)  Like shoulder joint, hip joint is:  ball and socket joint  multiaxial joint that allows flexion- extension, abduction-adduction and circumduction

25 ILLIUM

26 HIP JOINT CONT’D  unlike shoulder joint, hip joint is very stable  in fact it is the body’s most stable synovial joint due to:  deepened socked (via lip or fibrocartilaginous labrum )  an intrinsic and very strong extrinsic ligaments  dislocation in sports is not common, but can occur in car collisions  dislocate the head posteriorly or drive it through the posterior lip of the actetabulum

27

28 LOWER LIMB JOINTS

29 KNEE JOINT  Tibiofemoral or knee joint  incredible range of movement (flexion –extension)

30 KNEE JOINT CONT’D  however, the knee joint is relatively stable due to additional structural supports from:  menisci  shock-absorbing fibrocartilaginous discs  anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments  in the centre of the joint  lateral and medial collateral ligaments  extending from the sides of the femur to the tibia and fibula  the musculature that surrounds it

31

32 ANKLE JOINT  talocrural or ankle joint  involves several bones:  medial and lateral malleoli of the tibia and fibula  head of the talus  calcaneus (heel bone) Medial malleolus Lateral malleolus Talus Calcaneus

33

34  Execute a simple movement that isolates 1 joint  Describe the actions your body takes to execute the movement  Execute a complex movement involving multiple joints  Describe the actions your body takes to execute the movement
