Where are shapes of synovial joints? Where are they found?
- Have a variety of shapes
- And permit different types of movements
- Usually found at the end of long bones
- Elbow, knee, shoulder, knuckle
- Hip, thumb, ribs 2-7
What is the main difference between synovial and fibrous joints?
- The existence of capsules surrounding
- The articulating surfaces of a synovial joint
- & the presence of lubricating synovial fluid within
- that capsule (synovial cavity).
Name the unique characteristics of synovial joints?
- Bones are united by capsule (holds fluid)
- Often ligaments (tendons for support)
- Joint cavity with fluid
- Accessory structures
What are the accessory structures of the synovial joints?
- Fat pads
- Cartilage (articular)
- Blood vessels
What is the structure of diarthroses?
- Joint capsule(dense c.t)
- Articulating cartilages(more fluid within matrix)
- Hyaline cartilage on bone ends
- Synovial cavity lined with
- Synovial membrane which secrets
- Synovial fluid
What are is the function of synovial fluid?
- Lubrication (virtually frictionless)
- Nourishes chondrocytes
- Shock absorber/distributer
- Packets of synovial fluid in
- Envelope lined by synovial
Name the three types of synovial joint movements?
Define linear movement?
- Gliding, sliding
- Movement slight
What bones have linear movement?
- Carpal bones, tarsal bones
- Clavicle & sternum
What are the five angular movements?
- Away from the longitundinal axis
Move back to center axis
- In anterior/ posterior plane,
- Reduces angle between
- Articulting bones
Returns to anatomical position
Returns beyond anatomical position
- Right/left "no"
- Internal/external (whole limb)
- Pro=palm down
- Sup=palm up
What are the special movements?
- Dorsiflexion/plantar flexion
- Lateral flexion
What is lateral flexion?
Give an example of opposition?
- Thumbs ability to touch
- Each finger
Give an example of protraction/retraction?
- Protraction (chin moves away from body)
- Retraction (chin moves towards neck)
Give an example of elevation/depression?
- Shrug shoulders (elevation)
- Pull shoulders down (depression)
What are the structural classifications of synovial joints?
- Plane joints
- Condylar (ellipsoidal)
- Ball and socket
Name the plane joints of the structural classification of synovial joints?

Name the pivot joints of the structural classification of synovial joints?
- Atlas, & axis
- Radius & radical notch
Name the condylar joints of the structural classification of synovial joints?
- Fingers & toes
- Metacarpals & metatarsals
Name the ball & socket joints of the structural classification of synovial joints?
Name the saddle joint of the structural classification of synovial joints?
