Module Objectives:


Predict movements that would be allowed at a given synovial

joint using proper

terminology and describe the bones and anatomical features involved.


Describe the major functions of the skeletal system and explain how the

skeletal system relates to other body systems to maintain homeostasis. 


Predict factors or situations affecting the skeletal system and articulations

that could disrupt normal homeostatic function.

In study of the skeletal system should be readily apparent to how important synovial joints are in the normal function of the human body. Have to pick 2

synovial joints to discuss.  Pick one from each category below.  For

each selected joint should provide the following information: the movements

that are possible at that joint (use appropriate anatomical terminology),

identification of the bones, bony features, and soft tissue structures

(ligaments, tendons) that are involved in that joint, and a brief discussion of

the  associated clinical correlation provided for each. In discussion of

the clinical correlation must include a summary of the expected functional

deficit that would be produced by the condition. 


two of the following synovial joints to discuss, one from each list:




- ACL tear


- Labral tear


- "Nursemaid's" elbow


- Rotator cuff injury




joint - Osteoarthritis


- "Texter's thumb"


- Ankle fracture


- TMJ syndrome
