An immovable joint or slightly movable joint united by the sheets of fibrous tissue. The inferior tibiofibular joint is an example. Syndesmosis
An immovable joint occurring only in the skull. In this joint the interlocking bones are held tightly together by strong connective tissues. The sutures of the skull are an example. Suture
An immovable joint occurring only in the roots of the teeth. The roots of the teeth that lie in the alveolar sockets are held in place by fibrous peridontal ligaments. Gomphosis
A slightly movable joint. The bones in this joint are separated by a pad of fibrocartilage. The ends of the bones contain hyaline cartilage. Ex. pubic symphysis and the joint between each vertebral body. These joints all contain fibrocartilaginous pad or Symphysis
An immovable joint. This joint contains a rigid cartilage that unites two bones. An example is the epiphyseal plate between the epiphysis and diaphysis of a growing long. Synchondrosis
Uniaxial movement. This is the simplest synovial joint, permit slight movement. They have flattened or slightly curved surfaces, and most glide slightly in only one axis. Ex.: intercarpal and intertarsal joints of the wrist and foot; carpometacarpals (2-5 Gliding (plane)
Uniaxial movement. Permits only flexion and extension. Ex.: elbow joint, interphalangeal, humeroulnar, and humeroradial articulatons. Hinge (ginglymus)
Uniaxial movement. Allow only rotation around a single axis. A rounded or pointed surface of one bone ariculates within a ring formed partially by the other bone. Ex.: Distal and proximal radioulnar joint. Pivot (trochoid)
Biaxial movement. Permits movement in two directions at right angles to each other. Flexion, extension, abduction, adduction and circumduction. Ex.: radiocarpal and metacarpophalangeal joint. Ellipsoid (condyloid)
Biaxial movement. This joints permits movement in two axes, similar to the ellipsoid joint. Ex.: carpometacarpal joint of the first digit. Saddle (sellar)
Multiaxial movement. This joint permits movement in many axes: flexion and extension, abduction and adduction, and circumduction, and rotation. Ball and socket (spheroid)
The study of the joints, or articulations between bones. Arthrology
