Based upon movement, amphiarthrosis means Slightly Moveable
Based upon movement, diarthrosis means Freely Moveable
The 3 types of Fibrous joints Suture, Syndesmosis, Gomphosis
All fibrous joints are Synarthrotic
An example of a suture fibrous joint The skull
An example of a syndesmosis fibrous joint Tibia and Fibula
An example of a gomphosis fibrous joint Tooth in its socket

Rhematoid Arthritis Autoimmune; Pannus
Gouty Arthritis Uric Acid build up
Lyme Disease Spread by deer ticks, bullseye
Ankylosing Spondylitis Fusion of vertebrae
Types of Movement Flexion, extension, lateral flexion, abduction, adduction, rotation, pronation, supination, eversion, inversion, circumduction, dorsiflexion, plantarflexion
Flexion is the Decrease in angle between 2 bones
Extension is the Increase in angle between 2 bones
Lateral Flexion Side bending
Abduction Moves away from center of body
Adduction Moves towards center of body
Rotation Turns on an axis
Pronation Palm down, turn downward
Supination Palm up, turn upward
Eversion Turn sole of foot outward
Inversion Turn sole of foot inward
