Human Anatomy 113 There are three major types of joints: (1) Synarthrotic (fibrous) joints Bones are bound together by tough connective tissue. No movement occurs at these joints; they are very stable. An example of this type of joint is the sutures of the skull. (2) Amphiarthrotic (cartilaginous) joints Bones are bound together by hyaline or fibrocartilage tissue. Limited movement occurs at these joints. An example of this type of joint is that which occurs between vertebral bodies. (3) Diarthrotic (synovial) joints Most common type of joint. The joint capsule is lined with a synovial membrane that produces a lubricating fluid, cartilage protects the ends of the bones and ligaments bind and support this type of joint. These joints are freely movable. An example of this type of joint is the knee. 1 Articulations Laboratory
