  1. What is a Synarthroses (synarthrotic joint)?
    • A non movable joint
    • Most fibrous joints
    • e.g. sutures

  6. What are synocial joints?
    • Movable joints
    • Most common
    • Contains a joint capsule made of synovial membrane and filled with synocial fluid
  7. What is the structure of synovial joints?
    • Articular carilage: hyaline covers ends of bones - purpose; a cushion or compression
    • Joint/synovial cavity: Potential space with a little synocial fluid
    • Artiular capsule: double layer that encloses joint cavity
  8. What is a Fibrous capsule?
    Fibrous capsule - dense irregular connective tissue
  9. What is a Synovial membrane?
    Loos connective tissue + simple squamous epithelium
  10. What is synovial fluid?
    A slippery fluid within joint capsule - derived by filtration of capillaries in synovial membrane.
  11. What are Reinforcing ligaments?
    Ligaments that Reinforce and strengthen joints.
  12. What are Intrinsic/capsular ligaments?
    Thickened fibrocartilage
  13. What are extracapsular ligaments?
    Ligaments outside the capsule
  14. What are intracapsular ligaments?
    • Ligaments deep to the capsule
    • (But not within joint cavity)
  15. What is a Bursae?
    • A flattish fibrous sac
    • lined w/synovial membrane
    • Has a small amount of synovial fluid within
  16. Where are Bursae sacs located?
    Where muscles, ligaments, tendons, skin or bones rub
  17. What are tendon sheaths?
    Elongated bursa that wraps around a tendon
  18. What is the articulating surface?
    The surface of the bones that connect
  19. What are the four ranges of movement?
    • Nonaxial
    • Uniaxial
    • Biaxial
    • Multiaxial
  20. What is nonaxial movement?

  24. What 3 types of movement do synovial joints allow?
    • Gliding
    • Angular
    • Rotation
  25. What is gliding movement?
    • (nonaxial) gliding or slipping motion
    • Ex. Carpals, tarsals, intervertebral articular process
  26. What is angular movement?
    • Increase/decrease angles b/n bones
    • ex. flexion, extension, abduction, adduction
