Presentation on theme: "Articulations (joints)"— Presentation transcript:
1 Articulations (joints) Hold bones togetherAllow body movementsStructurally are 3 types:Fibrous, cartilaginous, synovialFunctionally are 3 types:Synarthroses or immovableAmphiarthroses or slightly movableDiarthroses or freely movableImmovable..……Slightly movable….….Freely movableS……………………..…A…………………………D
2 1. Fibrous Joints - immovable No joint cavityTwo major typesSuture joints – very short connective tissue fibersSyndesmoses – short ligament of dense fibersGomphosis – short periodontal ligament
3 2. Cartilaginous joints – most are slightly movable No joint cavityTwo main typesSynchondrosesSymphyses
4 3. Synovial joints – freely movable Joint cavity containing fluidSimilarities between synovial joints:1. articular capsule = fibrouscapsule + synovial membrane.2. articular cartilage covering the bone surface.3. reinforcing ligaments.4. May have fibrocartilage pads within capsule.5. Synovial fluid
5 Synovial Joints May also have: Menisci- discs or wedges of fibrocartilage padsBursae- flattened fibrous sacs lined wih synovial membrane
6 Synovial Joints Are many different types: Plane (gliding) Hinge Pivot CondyloidSaddleBall and socket
7 Types of synovial joints and their movementsa. Plane – allows slidingmovements in 1 or 2 planes.b. Hinge – allows movement in 1 planec. Pivot – allows rotational movement in 1 axis.
8 d. Condyloid – allows biaxial movements in 2 planes.e. Saddle – allows movement in 2 planes (biaxial).f. Ball and socket – allows multiaxial movement.
