Miguel AbreuHuman Anatomy and Physiology IFIBROUS VS. CARTILAGINOUSVS. SYNOVIAL JOINTS
Fibrous vs. Cartilaginous vs. Synovial JointsI am in school to be a registered nurse; it may be too soon to decide what field of nursing I maygo in to but I have been thinking of surgical nursing or maybe sport medicine. I guess it reallydoesn’t matter yet but the topic is relevant to all of us as we have bodies full of different types ofjoints and we often injured them. When we go to the doctor’s office or to the emergency room itoften falls to the registered nurse to care for and treat the injury, educate the patient about thecare needed, educate them about the medication they will need to take and how to use andmaintain any devices they may need to immobilize a joint if needed. For me personally I need tobe aware of proper body mechanics in sports and everyday life as well as nursing to avoid injury.
