  27. Define arthology
    Study of joints
  28. Three categories of joints by structure
    • fibrous
    • cartilagenous
    • synovial
  29. Define structure as it relates to joints
    Where to or more bones come together
  30. Three categories of joints by function
    • Synathrotic
    • Amphiarthrotic
    • Diarthrothic
  31. Define function as it relates to joints
    Movement created by muscle contracting to move bone allowed by joints
  32. How does diarthrotic joint move
  33. How does amphiarthrotic joint move
    Limited to moderate
  34. How does synarthrotic joint move
    little to none
