a point of contact between two bones, between bone and cartilage, or between bone and teeth.
Joint, also called an articulation or arthrosis
The scientific study of joints
The study of motion of the human body is called?
There is no synovial cavity, and the bones are held together by dense irregular connective tissue that is rich in collagen fibers
There is no synovial cavity, and the bones are held together by cartilage.
The bones forming the joint have a synovial cavity and are united by the dense irregular connective tissue of an articular capsule, and often by accessory ligaments
An immovable joint.
A slightly movable joint.
freely movable joint.
The three types of fibrous joints are
sutures, syndesmoses, and interosseous membranes.
An immovable fibrous joint that joins skull bones.
A joint in which the dense fibrous connective tissue that unites bones at a suture has been replaced by bone, resulting in a complete fusion across the suture line.
A fibrous joint in which a cone-shaped peg fits into a socket.
A slightly movable joint in which articulating bones are united by fibrous connective tissue.
a substantial sheet of dense irregular connective tissue that binds neighboring long bones and permits slight movement
is a cartilaginous joint in which the connecting material is hyaline cartilage.
A cartilaginous joint in which the ends of the articulating bones are covered with hyaline cartilage, but a broad, flat disc of fibrocartilage connects the bones.
