Types of S joints

Types of Synovial joints

Gliding joint two relatively flat bone surfaces slide over each other with little change in the joint angle. Examples - joints between the tarsal and carpal bones.
Hinge joint a convex(curving outward) surface of one bone fits into the concave (curving inward) surface of another bone, allowing movement in one direction. Examples are the elbow joint and the joints between the phalanges.
Pivot joint a rounded or pointed portion of one bone fits into a ring in another bone. Example, the joint between the atlas and axis of the cervical spine.
Condyloid joint an oval shaped projection of one bone fits into an oval-shaped depression on another bone. Examples, the joint between the metacarpal bones and the proximal phalanges of the fingers.
Saddle joint one bone fits into a saddle-like depression on another bone. Example, the joint between the wrist and the metacarpal of the thumb.
Ball-and-socket joint a ball-like surface of one bone fits into a deep cuplike depression in another bone. Example, the shoulder and hip joints.
