Bony Joint
an immovable joint
Collagenous connective tissue (dense regular) that attaches one bone to another.
Describes a freely movable joint
between humerus and ulna; uniaxial
what is an immovable joint?
increase in angle between bones
knee joint
largest joint supporting body weightside supporting ligaments: colateral igaments & external ligaments
immovable or only slightly movable fibrous joints that closely bind the bones of the skull to each other; they occur nowhere else. There are three kinds: Serrate, Lap (Squamous), or Plane (butt)
Atlantoaxial joint?
Atlas and Axis bone
Pivot structure
fibrous sac lined with synovial membrane and containing synovial fluid; occurs between bones and muscle tendons, where it acts to decrease friction during movement
define subluxation.
partial dislocation of a joint
-most common type- a chronic degenerative condition that is often called \"wear and tear arthritis\"-most common in aged & related to aging process-more common in women than men but 85 % of americans can develop it-affects the articular cartilages, causing them to soften, fray, crack, erode-when ever strain on a joint is repeated or excessive too much of the cartilage destryoing enzyme is released-badly alligned or overworked joints are suseptable
— bending movement that decreases the angle of the joint
movement of an anteriorly projected body part back to the anatomical position
Band of regular fibrous tissue that connects bones
Synovial Fluid
Lubricant rich in albumin and hyaluronic acid. Nourishes joint cartilages and removes their wastes. Contains phagocytes that clean up tissue debris.
Fibrous Joints
DFCT, either regular or irregulareg: sutures, syndesmosis, gomphosis, interosseous membrane
when ankles are crossed or hyperadduct the shoulder by clasping hands
gliding movements
simplest joint movement. Occurs when one flat bone surface glides over another (back and forth, or side to side). ex:intercarpal and intertarsal joints.
What are three factors that affect stability?
describe pivot joints.

•Rounded end of one bone conforms to a
“sleeve,” or ring of another bone

movement only 

elbow joint
Articulating bones= ulna & radius w/ condyles humerus ** close gripping of the humerus by ulnas trochlear notch that forms hinge & stabilizes jointstructural type= Synovial; hingeMovements allowed= diathrotic; uniaxial; flexion & extension of forearm
foot movement that tips the soles medially, somewhat facing each other
2 types of cartilaginous joints
synchondroses and symphyses
Articular capsule
Double layered capsule composed of an outer fribrous capsule lined by synovial membrane; encloses the joint cavity of a synovial joint
knee joing movements
phases of knee extension1. initial phase: rotation in suprameniscal compartment2. intermediate phase: femur glides forward in inframeniscal compartment3. terminal phase (screwed home)medial rotation, light collateral ligaments, obligatory terminal rotation of about 5 degrees
Amphiarthrodial Joints
These are joints that allow for minimal movement between bones. There are three types.1)Syndesmosis2)Symphysis3)Synchondrosis
putting your arm over your head and reaching towards the opposite side
What is ball and Socket movement?
flexion, extension, abduction, adduction, circumduction, and rotation
what are the 3 types of fibrous joints?




Ankylosing Spondylitis
-end stage of rhumtoid arthitis when the scar tissue eventually ossifies and the bone ends fuse together immobilizing the joint -often produces bent, deformed fingers
lateral excursion
side-to-side movement to the left or right of zero position
articular disc
separates the two bones and divides the joint cavity into two spacescartilage grown inward from the joint capsule
What are plane joints?
-Articular surfaces are essentially flat
-Allow only slipping or gliding movements
-Only examples of nonaxial joints (in between carpals)
(Bone) Jack Spavin
Degenerateness joint disease of the distal intertarsal and tarso-metatarsal joints, aka true spavin
A joint in which the bones are united by a ligament or a sheet of fibrous tissue
3. Pivot
rounded or pointed surface of one bone with ring formed partly by another bone, and by a ligament. (monoaxial- movement around its own axis)
General structure of a synovial joint
articular cartilage, synovial(joint) cavity, articular capsule, synovial fluid
Cartilaginous Joints
NO JOINT CAVITY; bones are united with each other by cartilage
what is the most easily dislocated joint in the body?
temporomandipular joint (TMJ)
Elbow joint muscles
-tendons of several arm muscles cross the elbow joint and provide stability -ie. biceps brachii & triceps brachii
pronation of the foot
combo of dorsiflexion, eversion, and abduction-toes are elevated and turned away from the other foot and the sole is tilted away from the other foot
Fibrous capsule have heavier
fibrous sleeve adjacent to synovial membranes may thicken in some area to form extracapsular ligaments to stabilize joints
Plantar Flexion
bending of foot at ankle joint in the direction of plantar or inferior surface (stand on tip toes)
Movements of synovial joints? (p. 298-304)
Flexion and extention, hyperextention, abduction and adduction, elevation and depression, protraction and retraction, circumduction, medial rotation, lateral rotation, supination and pronation
Rheumatoid Arth. cont.
along w/ pain and swelling of joints its manifestations include osteoporosis, muscle weakness, and problems w/ the heard and blood vessels -it is variable--- it may develop gradually or in spurts that are years apart-marked by flairups and remissionsTreatment= most drugs are anti-inflammatory, or antibiotic or they block immune response---given for long periods of time, and are only partly successful
what are the classifications of sutures?
serrate, lap, and plane sutures
3 joints in single knee joint cavity
Femoropatellar joint
Lateral and medial tibiofemoral joints
What is gouty arthritis?
when blood levels of uric acid rise, urate crystals are deposited into the joints and cause inflammation
can be destructive and can fuse articulating bones together
what three things do all synovial joints have?
1. joint cavity2. articular cartilage3. articular joint capsule
Stability of a joint is determined by:
Articular surfaces (shape determines what movements are possible)

Ligaments (unite bones and prevent excessive or undesirable motion)- not very stable
1. gomphosis
gompho= bolt or nail
fibrous joint in which a cone shaped peg fits into a socket (root of teeth)
where are capsular ligaments located?
theyare a part of the fibrous capsule and are an extension or thickening of the fibrous capsule which strengthens it and connects it to structures around the joint
Range of motion p. 295; What is range of motion determined by?
1.Structure of articular surfaces of bones - movement limited by shapes of bone surfaces2.Strength/ tautness of ligaments and joint capsules3.Action of the muscles and tendons -- opposition of antagonist musclesmuscle tone: state of tension in resting muscle
