    • Syndesmoses
  6. Types of Diarthrosis:

    • pivot joint
    • condyloid joint
    • saddle joint
    • ball and socket joing
  7. Structural Classification of Synarthroses
    bones are held together by fibrous connective tissue or cartilaginous tissue.
  8. structural classification of amphiarthrosis
    the bones are held together either by cartilage or fibers
  9. structural classification of diarthrosis
    have a synovial cavity and the bones forming the joint are united by a surrounding articular capsule and frequently by accessory ligament.

  14. shoulder joint and hip joint are the only 2
    ball and socket joint

    articular cartilage
  16. cushions around the joint
    fat pads
  17. anchor bones to bone
    ligament
  18. anchor muscles to bone
    tendon
  19. these two are fibrous synarthroses;
    suture and gomphosis
  20. examples of what kind of joint
