Explanation

Synovial joint is a type of joint in which the two articulating bones are not in direct contact with each other. The joint is enclosed within a joint capsule. The heads of the two bones are capped with the articular cartilage.There is a potential space between these bones known as the joint cavity, which is filled with synovial fluid. The joint is stabilized externally by ligaments.
