Which joint type

  1. Sacroiliac joints
    synovial joints
  2. What is a cartilaginous joint? How many types?
    the adjacent bones are united by cartilage (tough but flexible type connective tissue) 

    lack a joint cavity, bones are joined together by either hyaline cartilage (primary, synchondrosis; sometimes between ossification centres - this may ossify w/ age) or fibrocartilage (secondary, symphysis)
  3. Examples of primary cartilaginous joints
    • growth plates
    • in spine or ribs 
    • (allow only a little movement)
  4. Examples of secondary cartilaginous joints
    (often at midline, very strong but still allow limited movement)

    manubriosternal joint (between the manubrium and the sternum), intervertebral discs (intervertebral disc), and the pubic symphysis.
